some of my photography, mostly in and around the Kansas City area
It's not like I know every corner of KC but I was going to guess this was in front of the art museum (for lack of a better guess, anyway). I haven't been to the new wing of the Nelson-Atkins and I really really wanna go. We expect to be in town in May and will definitely make the time.
you're right, of course. it's just in front of the Nelson. This Spring would be the perfect time to see the new addition, you're right there, too. Go in the daytime and take in the exhibits but go back at dusk/evening and see it lit at night. It's a stunner.
