The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art ranks among the ten largest in the United States. It opened in 1993 and sits on 20 acres in south Kansas City. While the inner contents of the museum evoke a huge WOW factor, we found that the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Garden was equally impressive. It is home to our nation's largest collection of monumental bronze sculptures. We were gifted with a fabulous day of great weather and sky to walk paths covered with fallen leaves. Along the way we were able to appreciate some pretty great sculptures. Where possible, the notes posted next to each statue are reproduced here so that you may talk the same walk. Imagine the smells and light wind that followed us.
Unfortunately, we did not even get to walk around to the left side of the Sculpture Park. We have left many great opportunities for next time. Perhaps we shall return in the spring . . .
