Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park Kanas City Missouri

The collection began in 1986 when the Hall Family Foundation acquired 57 works by artist Henry Moore. In 1989.

Aaron & Patrick always give so much detailed information on their tours, I couldn’t remember every piece but these are some of the details that I could remember.

Mark Di Suvero, Rumi, the first steel sculpture we saw, painted the orange colour of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. Named for Jala al-Din Rumi, the 13th-century Persian poet and spiritual leader.

Claes Oldenburg’s Shuttlecocks - 5 dotted around the park made from aluminium, & fibreglass reinforced plastic

George Segal, American Rush Hour. 5 people oblivious to one another during rush hour.

Magdalena Abakanowicz, Standing Figures, Each figure is individually cast from a burlap-lined body mold.

Alexander Calder, Tom’s Cubicle, looked like a whimsical animal. The joining system was with nuts & bolts.

Roxy Paine, Ferment. 56ft high the sculpture embodies the surging energy of creation!

Judith Shea, Storage. Judith initially worked as a fashion designer.

Wherever Aaron & Patrick take us on their road trip there is always some new to discover.
