Kansas City, MO – The Kansas City Sculpture Park at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art recently re-opened to the public. Half of the thirty-one outdoor sculptures are in new locations; there are new signs, new labels, more pathways and five new entrances. Two of the bronze sculptures on display are works by British artist Tony Cragg who told KCUR's Laura Spencer that he'd always had a fascination with science. And after graduation in the late 1960s, Cragg worked in a laboratory as a chemistry technician.
