The four concrete columns that sit atop the Bartle Hall Convention Center are a distinct part of the Kansas City skyline.  The sculptures that crown the columns are called “Sky Stations” and were placed on top of the pillars via helicopter.

  2. Are they there for a reason other than art? They are unusual sculptures, not what you really expect.

    • The big columns help provide support to the building, but the art on top is just that: art. I agree that they are really unique. Some folks see them as symbolizing the word WOW! as you look at them from left to right: a triangular piece, a circular piece, a triangular piece, and a big exclamation point!
