Roxy Paine Ferment Sculpture

Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

The installation of a stainless steel work of art by internationally acclaimed artist, Roxy Paine, is just one example of the pieces of artwork brought to the museum that showcase the prominence of the Nelson-Atkins. The construction included creating a foundation for the 56-foot stainless steel, 34,000-pound tree sculpture, which required nine rock anchors that were drilled 30 feet into the ground. In addition, crane roads and pads were built to provide a way for all of the pieces to be brought to site at the top of a large hill.
