Art

Overland Park recognizes the importance of public art in creating cultural value, community identity, and engaging public spaces.

On this page, learn more about the permanent and temporary art installations in the city, and how you can get involved with Overland Park’s public art.

Art at the Center is a unique, not-for-profit gallery space that features exhibitions from local artists. Shows include issue and student exhibitions, as well as artists featured in the City’s permanent collection, artists who use varied media, and artists who create based on their life perspectives.

The gallery is free and open every day at Tomahawk Ridge Community Center.

If you are interested in having your art featured as part of an exhibition, contact Julie Bilyea at julie.bilyea@opkansas.org.

The Future of Art

The Future of Art exhibit features the exciting works of emerging young artists from high school students across Overland Park and the surrounding area. Each piece of art, from drawings and paintings to sculptures and pottery, was selected by the students’ teachers.

Involvement in the arts can help teens develop positive skills such as creative thinking and problem solving and can also improve their confidence and academic performance.

The exhibit will be on display through mid-January.
