Spirit's Delight

August 14, 2016

Location:  Ward Parkway and Brookside Boulevard, Kansas City, MO


Owner:  Kansas City Parks & Recreation Department


Artist:  Rita Blitt


Installed:  1991


Medium:  Stainless steel



This sculpture is located along a walking path on the east side of Brookside Boulevard near the intersection with Ward Parkway.  It is 12 feet tall, 4 feet wide and 16 inches deep.  The sculpture's material, stainless steel, makes it less susceptible to weather extremes and corrosive elements.


It has a graceful flowing motion from the base as it reaches up to the sky in a contemporary form.  The sun reflects off the metal, creating a different look at different times of day.
