First we saw Roxy Paine at work in January at his snowy upstate New York studio, building the “dendroid” that would soon be coming to Kansas City. Two weeks ago, we watched as the installation team poured themselves into the task of planting it on the Nelson Atkins Museum’s front lawn.
This morning, “Ferment” officially took root in a celebration that started inside the museum, where one of the artist’s’ SCUMAKs has been installed, and then moved outdoors. A silver ribbon encircling Roxy’s amazing
56 foot tall sculpture was then ceremoniously cut with, what else, garden shears?
