Welcome to OpenStudios, a program that pairs empty storefronts with practicing local artists. The artists benefit from a free studio for several months, and the building owner can market an animated, more attractive space that's easier to rent!
On December 17, 2019, Wichita City Council voted yes to a 2% pool of funding allocated for public art in public projects. City staff are currently working on a resource site that will contain a database where artists who would like to be considered for these projects can submit their qualifications, an artist information page, as well as an FAQ forum.
In collaboration with the City of Wichita and the Wichita Wind Surge baseball franchise, Fisch Haus presents a glimpse into the process through which public art is realized.
