“Ferment” Tree Sculpture by Roxy Paine at the Nelson Atkins

Because I still get a fairly noticeable amount of traffic to this one post back in June of shots of the Ferment stainless steel tree sculpture by Roxy Paine on the grounds of the Nelson Atkins Museum, I decided to go back and get more and do…

Inside Kansas City Above-Street Skywalks Pt. 1 of 2
