Glass Labyrinth

Robert Morris' glass labyrinth.

When was the last time you got lost for the fun of it? Glass Labyrinth, a huge sculpture by Robert Morris, has proved an enormous hit with the general public as they do just that at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art’s Sculpture Park in Kansas City. Celebrating the park’s twenty fifth anniversary, the sculpture marks the beginning of the park’s six month commemoration. Fully transparent and created using one inch thick glass, the installation is disorientating to say the least, taking the idea of a labyrinth to a whole new level. Aesthetically pleasing – and of course, really good fun – the maze is best enjoyed when you have the sculpture all to yourself. In the tranquil grounds and glass walls, you can truly get lost just for the fun of it.
