12’ H x 100’ W x 18” D set on a curve

Aluminum, light.


Illuminated from within to glow blue in the evening, this semi-transparent aluminum wall creates shifting moire patterns as the viewer moves throughout the plaza engaging with the piece. The wall functions as a memorial to fallen firefighters of Kansas City. It is fully integrated into the existing site, enhancing the existing fountain and bronze statue.


Commissioned by Municipal Art Commission of Kansas City and KCMO Parks Planning and Design.
