Rows of Headless Men

Field review by the editors.

Kansas City, Missouri

Whoa. At the same art museum exhibiting the World's Largest Shuttlecocks, you'll find this disturbing formation of 6-ft. tall fellows without heads. Thirty of them, in suits, rendered in bronze by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz. The 1998 sculpture is in the museum's Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park and is a permanent part of its collection.
