It was a beautiful day

We were looking for something fun, local and inexpensive to do after lunch on Sunday, and since we were in the neighborhood we opted for a stroll through the sculpture Kansas City Sculpture Park.

Our four-year-old was impressed with the Henry Moores... for about 10 minutes. Then she was more interested in finding a shady patch of ground to play in the dirt.

But it was a nice stroll nonetheless.

The new Bloch Building looks terrific framed against the lush landscaping. I was very impressed with how well the it integrates with the south lawn of the museum. It becomes almost a wall of a large outdoor room, creating a intimate experience in a large landscape.

PS- If you can't wait to see the inside of the Bloch Building, there's another really good slide show of the interior online at Architecture for Art.

  1. Thank you for this--and for reminding me to spend more time looking at the sculptures the next time I'm there.

  2. It's easy to overlook the sculpture collection when you plan a trip to the museum, since there's so much to see in the museum proper. It's nice living in the area though, especially on beautiful day like Sunday. You can just stroll idly along the grounds like a European noble.


Your turn to riff...
