A Stone Wall That WalkedA Stone Wall That WalkedStone masons finish the Walking Wall at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art at Kansas City. The wall, created by Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy, "walked" to its permanent destination, beginning east of the museum. Over a nine-month period, British stone masons continually moved limestone blocks from the wall's tail to its head, walking it across the museum grounds, down a flight of stairs, and into the Bloch Building, which houses the museum's contemporary art. The drystone wall is made of limestone from the Flint Hills of Kansas.
