Located in the heart of the city and alongside the Little Arkansas River, the Wichita Art Museum’s new Art Garden offers a breathtaking landscape environment. With a terrain that reflects the place and plantings of Kansas, the roofless museum offers unique areas for peaceful retreat as well as animated gatherings. Lush plantings—more than 100 new trees, nearly 600 shrubs, and more than 20,000 perennials and grasses—with outdoor sculptures by Derek Porter, Vicki Scuri, Henry Moore, Tom Otterness, and  Jun Kaneko gracing the garden meld art and nature, urban leisure and aesthetic enjoyment. This stunning, fully illustrated volume celebrates this award-winning space that has become a destination in South Central Kansas.
