Elmer F. Pierson Sculpture Garden Fountain
Found: May 6, 2016
This fountain is located in the East Sculpture Terrace on the south side of the Nelson-Atkins Building and was given to the museum by Elmer F. Pierson. The water bubbles up in the upper-most level and runs and trickles down the various levels until it reaches the basin below. The water coming up in the top looks no greater than a drinking fountain might put out. As you can see in the pictures it sits underneath the branches of a tree and during the spring and summer sits mainly in the shade until late afternoon. There are a few sculptures nearby.
This is an updated post. The old post had only three pictures and I wanted to update it with more and better pictures.
