Art is part of our everyday life in Overland Park. 

Overland Park embraces art from free concerts to iconic art installations. The city's cultural amenities include live performances, sculpture, art collections and exhibitions.

You see examples of the city's art collections around every corner, from the permanent collections at the Overland Park Convention Center and community centers to sculptures in parks and the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens.

Overland Park has a Public Art Master Plan that guides when, where and what type of art will be installed. Efforts are made by the city's arts coordinator and the Friends of the Overland Park Arts to ensure equity among wards.

You can visit the city's art installations with your smart phone, tablet as a guide, or in the comfort of your own home by using this collection tour link.
