Surely it’s caught your eye…as you drive through the intersection 63rd and Brookside Blvd. There on the southeast corner is a new 12″ art sculpture titled “Inspired Child”. It’s a collaboration between students at Border Star school, ceramist Paul Storms, art teacher Lee Anne Snozak and the Leopold Gallery.
Installed in May 2010, it’s a tall and striking piece of work, made of stoneware, stainless steel and cast glass. It’s bright, colorful, adorned in parts with beads and waves a bit with the wind. This piece joins other outdoor sculptural art in Brookside, noticeably the tall metal wind catchers in front of the Roasterie and along the 63rd St shops between Wornall and Brookside Blvd.
Thanks to the artists and Border Star for adding this piece of art to the heart of Brookside!
