10 Shining Years For KC Curlers
Not available online
Title10 Shining Years For KC Curlers
AbstractThe author in his newspaper commentary column discusses the 10th anniversary of the sculpture atop the pylons at Bartle Hall, often referred to as "hair curlers". The name of the sculpture is "Sky Stations" and it was designed by R. M. Fischer. The artist's intention was to evoke the art deco fixtures in Municipal Auditorium. There was much criticism at the beginning, but now the work is perhaps the most noticeable work of art in the city. Mr. Fischer will be in Kansas City soon as a consultant to the Bartle Hall renovation.
