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.
