KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A large glass labyrinth opens to the public this week at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.

The museum is holding a public event Thursday for “Glass Labyrinth,” a glass triangle with a maze of interior glass walls. The labyrinth is the work of artist Robert Morris and is in the museum’s Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1nbjYSx ) the sculpture, which weighs more than 400 tons, was commissioned with funding from the Hall Family Foundation. The sculpture’s opening marks the beginning of the park’s 25th anniversary celebration.

Morris, a Kansas City native who attended Paseo Academy and the Kansas City Art Institute, will also attend a public celebration and ribbon-cutting for the “Glass Labyrinth” Thursday.
