FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 14, 2016
The City of Kansas City, Missouri, and A. Zahner Company will reinstall the Sky Station sculpture that was removed in May after lightning struck the easternmost 300-foot pylon at the Kansas City Convention Center.
The reinstallation of the 12-ton metal sculpture is planned for Sunday, Sept. 18, starting as early as 7 a.m. For information on street closures that will impact downtown traffic flow, please visit www.KCMO.gov/SkyStations. That site also has information on parking and designated viewing areas.
We are so grateful to the project team for repairing the Sky Station. We are really looking forward to the sculpture regaining its iconic perch on the Kansas City skyline,’’ said Liz Bowman, Public Art Administrator with the Municipal Art Commission. `’The Bartle Hall Sky Stations have helped establish Kansas City’s reputation as an ‘Art City.’’
