Heads On Parade

Ceramic heads guard the roofline of an historic apartment building off of Kansas City's Country Club Plaza shopping district, but the city's Landmarks Commission now says the heavy heads must come down.

It took a crane to get each art student's sculpted head to the roof of Don Anderson's Tudor-style apartment building, where the sculptures are held in place with Liquid Nails. In spite of the sculptures being a local landmark, Kansas City's Landmarks Commission insists the heads must be removed from the building.
