Our Work

Art Garden at Wichita Art Museum

Wichita, Kansas

Confluence was retained by the Wichita Art Museum to lead a multi-disciplinary team in transforming the 8 acres of ground surrounding the existing museum into an inviting garden space for community interaction with art and the landscape.

The project involves the integration of landscape architecture, exterior art and sculpture, architecture, site furnishings, wayfinding and lighting to create an environment to accommodate a variety of both active and passive public activities. Desired events range from concerts, parties and weddings to personal reflection or youth education.

Throughout the design process, a series of workshops were held to allow collaboration between the design team and stakeholders including the Museum Art Garden Committee, Oversight Consultant and City Staff.
