Spencer Walker Luckey is an American artist and president of Luckey Climbers, a design/fabrication firm that specializes in climbing sculptures for children's museums and other institutions world-wide.
Spencer was raised in Short Beach, Connecticut by artist Tom Luckey and Elizabeth Mason. He attended the Foote School, followed by Northfield Mount Hermon and is a graduate of Connecticut College and Yale School of Architecture. He is married to artist Briah Uhl, and they have a son, Clyde.
Spencer took over operations in 2006 after his father, Tom Luckey, became paralyzed and has been responsible for the design, fabrication and installation of the climbers. While the head of Luckey Climbers, Spencer has introduced digitally-based techniques of shaping and structural analysis, his work marks a departure from the analogue mode of his father. Of late, Luckey Climbers has also expanded internationally. Recent projects include climbers at the Providence Children's Museum, the Children's Museum of Houston, Formel Fun in Bülach, the Indianapolis Children's Museum, the Gyeonggi Children's Museum, W5 at the Odyssey, the Franklin Institute the Foote School, and the Liberty Science Center.
Spencer and his family were featured in the documentary, “Luckey”, which focused on Luckey Climbers in the aftermath of the accident which left Tom Luckey paralyzed. The film was shown at SxSW and other festivals, as well as on the Sundance Channel.
