                     Sculpture Park - The Henry Moore Sculpture Garden

                     In June 1989, the Henry Moore Sculpture Garden
    opened on the Museumís
                     south lawn, marking the beginning of the
    Nelson-Atkinsí commitment to
                     collecting the finest sculpture of our times. Ten
    of the 13 monumental outdoor
                     sculptures by the distinguished British artist
    Henry Moore are part of a
                     collection of nearly 60 works by Moore acquired in
    1986 by The Hall Family
                     Foundation and subsequently placed on long-term
    loan to the Museum. The
                     majority of the Hall collection, maquettes and
    working models, are installed in
                     the Rozzelle Court Balcony inside the Museum. In
    1991, the Foundation added
                     another Moore sculpture to the garden. In addition
    to the Hall collection, the
                     Garden includes a Moore sculpture owned by the
    Museum and one owned by
                     the city of Kansas City, Mo.

    Maybe I'm insane- I remember 300- well 60 is plenty, but I'm still
    going to find out about my 300# I located the archives on the star
    but I don't have a library card in KC any more and they charge for
    their archives now. The saga continues. make it 400 blows!
