Almost complete! New sculptural artwork, commissioned as part of the City’s One Percent for Art program, by local artist Jake Balcom of Mettle Design in Swope Park Soccer Village. The artwork “Triple Blome” features three progressive sculptural forms each beginning with the geometric shape of a soccer ball—known as a “Truncated Icosahedron.” Each of the three hollow metal forms sits atop 10′ steel posts. The transparency of the sculptural elements creates moving shadows on the adjacent plaza throughout the day, enhancing the visual interest of the artwork. #KCParks #TripleBlome | KC Parks Instagram Photos
