Sculptures of Kansas City

Complementing more than 100 fountains located throughout the metropolitan area, Kansas City also has a large number of beautiful outdoor sculptures.  I’ve established this page as part of my site as I work my way through photographing as many Kansas City sculptures as possible.  As I am able to capture a sculpture, I’ll link to the related blog post until I have worked my way through the entire list.
