Poised migrates to Kansas City Missouri

Gray-suited and stodgy, frayed but grand, the Great Blue Heron is no bright flash. Elegantly poised, it stands perfectly still, nested in among the tall pine trees. ‘Poised,’ this 25 ft tall sapling and wire sculpture that has stood on the Christian Science Plaza in Boston for the past 6 months as part of Convergence: The Boston Sculptors Gallery 20th anniversary exhibit is heading South for the winter. The Myth Makers: Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein have sold this sculpture to a private collector in Kansas City Missouri and recently sited it on private property at the corner of Ward Parkway and Huntington Ave. Although technically only a partial migrant, this great blue heron will be making a one way trip to live in a warmer climate. The Myth Makers are a collaborative team of sculptors who enjoy the physical and philosophical challenges of working together.

Update: The Kansas City Star ran a profile on 8/29/14 about Steve Abend and his art collection, that mentions our piece, Poised,  "Architect Steve Abend builds an artful outdoor oasis" by Alice Thorson.
