Funding approved for art project for downtown Wichita park

The Wichita City Council has approved funding for public artwork that will be part of a new look for a downtown park.

The Chester I. Lewis Reflection Square Park at 205 East Douglas is being redesigned, and it will serve as an entry for the new Kansas Health Science Center, a medical school that is under construction.   Wichita Park and Recreation Director Troy Houtman said the park will be a gathering space to support the school and the surrounding community.

Downtown Wichita and the Wichita Parks Foundation will provide a donation of $250,000, and the city will provide $150,000 for the project.

Two artists have been chosen for the project.   Local artist Ellamonique Baccus and national artist Matthew Mazzotta will be working on designs for the park.
