Artist Jan Hendrix stands at the entryway of the cylindrical sculpture "Mirror Pavilion," now a permanent fixture at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

"Mirror Pavilion," a new sculpture by Jan Hendrix, has been unveiled on the lawn of The Nelson-Atkins Museum.

Just beyond one of the famous Shuttlecocks at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is a shining new sculpture. The reflective "Mirror Pavilion" is now a permanent display on the south lawn of the museum.

Kathleen Leighton joined Steve Kraske to discuss the work of art and other exhibits coming to the museum this fall.
