KANSAS CITY (AP) - A large glass labyrinth opens to the public this week at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.
The museum is holding a public event Thursday for "Glass Labyrinth," a glass triangle with a maze of interior glass walls. The labyrinth is the work of artist Robert Morris and is in the museum's Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park.
The Kansas City Star reports the sculpture, which weighs more than 400 tons, was commissioned with funding from the Hall Family Foundation. The sculpture's opening marks the beginning of the park's 25th anniversary celebration.
Morris, a Kansas City native who attended Paseo Academy and the Kansas City Art Institute, will also attend a public celebration and ribbon-cutting for the "Glass Labyrinth" Thursday.
