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.

  1. They look a lot better at night 🙂

  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!


I love hearing from you!
