The City of Wichita is home to a diverse community of artists and our cultural heritage is reflected in a wide range of publicly accessible art. Murals and outdoor sculptures are visible throughout the City and there is always more to discover, from artwork integrated into our parks and aquatics facilities to pop-up performances by musicians and dancers. Public art is an important part of Wichita's story, reflecting collective memories as well as a shared vision for our future.
Percent for Art and Public Art Registry
In 2019, the Wichita City Council approved an ordinance that allots 2% of Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project funds to provide for the funding, selection, creation, and maintenance of public art. The Division of Arts and Cultural Services is establishing the Public Artist Registry as a necessary corollary for the Percent for Art Program.
