Location:  Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard and Elmwood Avenue, Kansas City, MO


Owner:  KCMO Parks & Recreation Department


Artist:  William Reed


Dates:  1980s


Medium:  Steel, wood



Two triangular shapes made of steel and wood are supported by two steel legs.  The wooden elements are made out of pine 2x12's.  The steel elements look to have been created out of stock I-beams that have been cut length-wise with a cutting torch.  The cut edges of the steel were left rough and creates a jagged outline.  The steel was painted a bright green but time and the elements have weathered the green paint and has exposed some of the blue primer underneath.  It is located just west of the intersection of Cleaver II Boulevard and Elmwood on the north side of the road.
