This bas relief sculpture depicts August R. Meyer, Kansas City's first president of the Board of Park Commissioners, with great dignity. He stands in a powerful position looking into the distance while standing beneath a tree that frames the relief. An image of Meyer immersed in the field of his dedication and position is created by the use of specific attributes. He stands with binoculars in hand and instruments including a globe and scrolled documents appear at Meyer's side. Meyer's lasting reverence within city government would warrant such a piece.
