One Sun/34 Moons
Found: June 23, 2013
Not really a fountain, but it is listed with the City of Fountains Foundation, so here it is. This is a large reflecting pool on the North side of the Nelson-Atkins museum. The large yellow object is the sun. Arranged around it are 34 “moons.” Each moon is actually a skylight down into the parking garage below. At night, the lights in the parking garage make the moons glow. The picture above was taken from the steps of the museum to the south. One of the shots below includes one of the museum’s iconic shuttlecocks in the background. The last two shots are of the skylights from within the parking garage.
