b'Creating MemoriesQuality of place is an important component to furthering the vision outlined in Project Downtown: The Master Plan for Wichita.

Each unique work of art was created with a conscious effort to serve all visitors, including specific consideration for individuals with low to no vision. Learn more on the next page.20'
