KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City native and sculptor has an idea of what could fill the space where a Confederate monument once sat on Ward Parkway.
During the last decade, organizations from across the country and right here in our area have commissioned works from E.S. Schubert Sculpture Studios.
About two months ago, co-owner Spencer Schubert received a call from a county in a southern state asking if he could recreate a sculpture of a confederate figure.
“I said, 'Absolutely not. We’re not going to do that for you.' But it got me thinking about how to go about helping cities that have taken down monuments, replace them with something that is uplifting,” Schubert said.
