A beautiful 20 acre meadow in the Sedgwick County Park near the 13th street entrance in Wichita, Kansas has been designated by Sedgwick County to be an art park for "family friendly environmental art".

The conditions are that the Wichita Arts Council has to approve the artwork, then the county will maintain it and help construct the pathways to make it wheel chair accessible, but they will not pay for the artwork or the installation. We estimate the cost of the artwork, installation, and pathways to be approximately $400,000.

The Arts Council has been very supportive of this project and has approved five large environmental, interactive artworks by six artists who have experience in public art in this area. We are hoping to raise the money and begin to start construction of this environmental art park in the spring of 2016.

We have found that the idea of an environmental art park is intriguing and exciting to people. We believe this park will be a destination place that will bring people in from around the region and beyond. It will photograph beautifully. It will be on travel brochures, and best of all, it will be a fun, engaging experience for those visiting this park.

Thank you,
