Spirit's Delight

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.
