Just A Few Sculptures From The Nelson Atkins Sculpture Garden

A couple of weeks age, Michael and I went to the reception for the unveiling of Robert Morris’s Glass Labyrinth. This is also the 25th Anniversary of the Donald J. Hill Sculpture Park. So I thought it might be fun to have a post about just a few sculptures you could see there.

Shuttlecocks by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, 1994. The Shuttlecocks were very controversial when they were installed. Now they are a Kansas City icon.
Ferment by Roxy Paine, 2010
Three Bowls, Ursula von Rydingsvard, 1990
Peace On Earth by Jacques Lipschitz, 1969, one of seven bronze castings  


The Thinker, by Auguste Rodin. This is one of twenty five  72″ Thinkers in the world. It was cast in 1949.


Interior Form by Henry Spencer Moore, 1981. The sculpture garden started out to be a tribute to British sculpture Henry Spencer Moore. There are about 11 of his sculptures in the garden.

So this ends my mini tour. If you want to explore the Nelson-Atkins Museum Of Art, click HERE.
