‘Glass Labyrinth’ is better, bigger than ‘Shuttlecocks’

In 1989, the Nelson Gallery unveiled the Henry Moore Sculpture Garden, complete with dozens of new trees and winding walking paths on its expansive southern front lawn.

The trees have matured and some names have changed since then — to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park.

But intriguing sculptures still draw crowds to the area.

From 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, the museum will hold a public unveiling of Robert Morris’ “Glass Labyrinth” to kick off its six-month long celebration of the park’s 25th anniversary.

It is a Kansas City jewel, getting better looking with the years.

Well, except for the silly “Shuttlecocks” installation from 1993. The appeal of those things will never make sense to me.
