Open Spaces Kansas City

Kansas City is just rainy now.  The possibility of tornado weather this afternoon.  Tornado weather in October, for real?  The sun did peak it's head out yesterday for a short while.  It warmed up and it was quite a change from the dreary.
Kansas City has an art experience going on, it is called Open Spaces.  On Saturday, Alli and I, along with one of her friends ventured out in the city to explore the places.   They are in five sections.  We visited everything in the Swope Park area except the pink tree.  We couldn't find it.  We visited the 18th and Vine area and saw the three non performance pieces there.  We ventured over to the Crossroads area and went to one of them and the other one was closed.  I'll have to go after work one day.
It's all free.  It's interesting. And it is worth the time to go and find these places.
This is not actually one of the exhibits.  It is a pavilion high on a hill.  You can see it from the primate area of the zoo, far below.  I always wondered what it was and we found it.  It's worth the short drive up the hill.

The pool is filled with flowers, stuffed animals and candles.  It looks as though people are borrowing with no intent to return, some of the flowers.  People are silly.  Leave things where they remain.
This one is one of my favorites, hard to get a picture of though.  It's an abandoned park shelter.  They have homeless bird persons living in it.  They have a barrel for fire and their nest set up across the way.
This was one experience that is hard to describe.  It takes a good five minutes to even get orientated in this building.  It's hard to walk because you feel like you are trying to walk against water.  I have a few videos of it that I will try to post on Instagram.  The hashtag to follow is #openspaceskc
