IC in the ICT

Beyond the city parks, there are many so many cool things about Wichita. This is where I will try to introduce some new stories, shed some light on Wichita’s past, and highlight some of the unique points my city has to offer.

  • It’s a beautiful piece of art and a fitting monument to those that fought in the Civil War. And wait until you hear the famous last words of our county’s namesake. Sedgwick County Memorial Hall and Soldiers and Sailors Monument

  • It’s a fantastic art project across several city blocks bringing culture and color to one of Wichita’s oldest neighborhoods. Check out the 9th Street Redevelopment Project.

  • Subtlety placed along McLean, these winds-ical art pieces both catch the eye and block an eye-sore… But do they really play music when the wind blows? Take a moment to visit The Mighty Wind Organ.

  • Dad and I got a tour of the Orpheum Theater… Cue the John Williams Star Wars theme… we’re calling this one The Return of the Usher.

  • When your crusing down Kellogg doing 60 mph, you might miss one of Wichita’s biggest pieces of art. It’s time to slow down a take a look at The Wind Spirit Gateway

  • He made it easier for Americans to travel down the road, but it was this Wichita’s own road into mental health issues that ended his career. Meet “Woody” Hockaday

  • It’s About Time: Forty years ago, the clock tower was struck by lightning. A look inside and out of a Wichita icon.

  • Paragon Part of the city council did not want this sculpture, until the artist said, “Everything out here is horizontal, you need something vertical.”

  • Fast Times at Planeview High At one time it was called the “Miracle City.” A city within a city, with its own shops and even a high school. Studying up on the home of the Gremlins.
