Riverview Art Garden - Wichita Art Museum

Wichita, Kansas

 

The eight-acre site surrounding the museum was transformed into an inviting sculpture park to accommodate a variety of active and passive public spaces.

The project involved the integration of landscape architecture, exterior art and sculpture, aesthetic lighting, crafted earthwork and identification signage to create a welcoming environment in support of the Museum's impressive outdoor sculpture collection. The results provide an inviting collection of garden spaces and pathways around and through the site to facilitate community interaction with art and landscape. Confluence led a collaborative and interactive design and planning process to create a master plan for transforming the museum grounds.

As a result of enormous enthusiasm and financial support from the board members, major donors and other museum patrons involved in the planning process, what began as a small first phase garden design project quickly morphed into a full-throttle revitalization of the entire grounds.  Even with the significant increase in scope, our team was able to effectively manage and complete the entire project to meet the schedule for the original first phase project.
