Public art in Olathe is an amenity that helps build the overall identity of the city, activates public spaces, and connects people to the community.
Permanent Sculpture Exhibit
Sculptures are purchased and displayed throughout the Olathe community. There are currently 23 permanent sculptures throughout Olathe, including 3 outside of the Olathe Community Center.
Rotating Downtown Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit
Sculptures are selected and displayed throughout the downtown area of Olathe for a period of one to two years. The sculptures are on loan for a stipend amount from artists throughout the country.
The 2020 Downtown Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit is coming soon! The exhibit is juried by members of Olathe's Public Art Committee. The 2019 exhibit closed on May 1, 2020. During the months of May & June, artists will begin picking up sculptures from the 2019 exhibit as new sculptures arrive for the 2020 exhibit.
Visit the Sculpture Exhibit Sites to enjoy an interactive self-guided tour illustrating images and locations for each sculpture.
