TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CONSERVATIVES AND UMKC OFFICIALS WORKING TO STOP NELSON-ATKINS MUSEUM BORDER WALL PROTEST BLOCKING ROCKHILL ROAD!!!



First on TKC or at least a better write-up than lesser news outlets . . .

THE KANSAS CITY ART GALLERY RECENTLY ANNOUNCED A 'MOVING WALL' EXHIBIT THAT PLANS TO BLOCK A HIGH TRAFFIC MIDTOWN STREET!!! 

Even better or worse . . .

YES, THE DISPLAY OFFERS A SILLY 'ON THE NOSE' SUBTEXT AGAINST THE PREZ TRUMP BORDER WALL!!!

Here's the high art note . . .

Nelson-Atkins Museum Of Art: Andy Goldsworthy to Create Walking Wall on Nelson-Atkins Campus

Deets:

Kansas City, MO. Jan 24, 2019– Acclaimed artist Andy Goldsworthy, who works with nature and time to create site-specific installations, will build Walking Wall in five successive sections at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City in 2019. Over a period of five installments, the wall will literally move from the east part of the museum to its final resting place inside and outside the Bloch Building lenses. The stone wall will fulfill Goldsworthy’s long-held vision of creating a wall that inches its way through a place. Walking Wall will move from a five-acre piece of land east of the museum, onto the museum campus, and ultimately into the museum, drawing its way through the museum’s campus . . .

It will cross Rockhill Road and will require the closing of the road for three to four weeks, in cooperation with the Parks and Recreation Department of Kansas City. The public will be allowed to watch the construction of the piece from a distance, allowing the viewer to see boundaries cut across rather than created.

A mock-up:



Now . . .

PUSH BACK IS UNDERWAY GIVEN KCMO IS BASICALLY GIVING PERMISSION FOR THIS PUBLIC STREET ARTSY PROTEST!!!

Remember that Missouri lawmakers have actually worked to crack down on protesters who block streets to convey their message.

One insider tells us . . .

"It's just unfair, there really isn't any good reason to block Rockhill for UMKC students just to make a political or artistic point. Art is fine but KCMO has a bigger responsibility to maintain safe streets."

Even more importantly and we'll mention this FIRST because reporters in this town are cretins.

Kansas City playing with streets in the name of "conceptual art" is reminiscent world-renowned artist Christo killing a woman with one of his giant umbrellas placed by a California roadside.

And so, expect just a bit of more debate on the topic as the artsy publicity grab has already garnered a negative reception.

I once lived close to Rockhill Road. Finally realized that in KCMO you are not a citizen, just a parasitic host. Will never live in the KCMO city limits again.

These same progressives were ok with the wall that Clinton built and with Chuck Schumer's vote on the wall during Obama's black panther reign but are not when Trump wants it. Go figure.

Get in my way and I will run you down with my car!!!!!!!!!!

^^^^ Hey twatbag, did it ever cross your mind that, eh, we're probably good on walls after the work we've done in the past? Whataboutism is the fucking lamest argument on the planet yet you assholes live and die by it.

FTR, I'm good with relying on the experts on the issue who call for structures in strategic locations along with personnel and technology. What I'm not good with is giving this "businessman" a blank check to build wall wherever he wants.

8:49 Yeah, sure they don't. Every person working at the border, says they do, but here in KC, in your mom's basement, you have figured it out.

Progressives are liars, mendacious, deceptive scum, who seek the replacement of the white voters they lost, with foreign born voters who will be dependent on Government money to exist and will vote Democrat to continue to get that same money.

Democrats need parasites on the government dole, voting to keep them in office.

I hope you lying scum bags get cancer in your fuckin eyes.

@8:54AM UMM...@WRONG! Sorry shit-bag(chuck) Check with every Congressman who's state borders our southern border to see if it works. It doesn't. Then see if they want a wall. They don't. They know, you don't. So go back to whatever it is you do all day. Oh and here's to hoping you get that cancer in your eyes right back you fucking scumbag!

The City and its Council seem ever anxious to embarrass themselves and causing its citizen-ATMs as much trouble as possible.

And I hope you Trump supporters live long lives, so you can suffer the humiliation of having fallen for the "Cult 45" lies and treason every day, while the normal people go about the business of repairing the damage he and you have done to this Country.

It's the Nelson-Atkins Museum Of Art, who cares what they do. 95% of us living around here will never go see it or be inconvenienced at all by it.

If someone drives into the wall and injures or kills themselves, then they deserve it.

Imagine lawyers are already getting into a tizzy.

I’m a political independent and have traveled a lot and seen some amazing places. But in the end, few, if any, places I’ve gone even come close to the US. I really hope the Democrats will not sacrifice our country just to add third-world voters to their rosters. I am not racist and I welcome any immigrants that come here through the proper channels. But I do think it’s wrong to jeopardize our own culture and way of life just for potential votes.

You call that a better write up? A copied and pasted press release with a totally unsubstantiated "insider pushback" and a lot of false assumptions?

Get real.
