While I'm sure it's been told in the local press, I hadn't heard the story of Disney Hall's fountain until I read it today in the Kansas City Star. Travel Editor Allen Holder how Frank Gehry designed the fountain in response to seeing china collected in the home of Lillian Disney, the concert hall's primary benefactor. The fountain's blue and white coating was created from 200 vases created by the Royal Delft company in the Netherlands.

This story, as well as the recent piece in the Toronto Star, came out of a travel editor convention hosted Downtown last month. It's cool to see this kind of Downtown press as the result.
