The City's Art Collection
Art is part of our everyday life in Overland Park.
The city's cultural amenities include live performances, sculpture, art collections and exhibitions. You can 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. View planned sites here.
The City is adding to its public art collection. Read more about the artwork needed for the City Hall renovation project.
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 or you can review this list of completed projects and council approved sites for future development.
