Cowtown Cowboy














Kansas City’s Scout statue gets all the attention. Most of the city’s "one percent for art" money seems to be dedicated to installing cold, contemporary slabs of metal. I happen to like the whizbangs atop Bartle Hall, but that remains a minority opinion. Meanwhile, this Remington cowboy in Barney Allis Plaza is forgotten. Give the old boy some encouragement the next time you see him.

    It is an old grainy photo, that is why I like it and why I love this statue:

    Where exactly is that? Does it still stand?

    Happy in Bag,

    Since 1990 the statue has been located at Clark Point at 8th and Jefferson Streets. Great view of the confluence of the Kaw and Missouri rivers.

    I didn't even know there WAS a Pendergast statue.

    Maybe they should put it in the common area of the county jail.
