Garage art

Dec 2, 2011

We head west this week where public art can be found in places you’d least expect it.

Parking garages in Kansas City are infused with art – from the light and sound work called Pulse, next to City Hall; to the dancing lights in the underground garage at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art from a reflecting pool overhead. In the new parking garage at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, there’s a public art installation activated by movement. Original music pipes out of more than a hundred speakers, and four stories of lights radiate patterns of blue and white. Laura Spencer met up with composer David Moulton and artist Lajos Héder during the installation.
