Public Art Program

About the Public Art ProgramPublic Art

Johnson County Parks and Recreation (JCPRD) launched a new Public Art Program in 2020 to activate our parks spaces in a new way. The JPCRD Public Art committee is comprised of JCPRD staff and members of the community to help direct the work, budget and timeline, under the direction of the JCPRD Board.

JPCRD was fortunate to work with a local artist in 2018 to conduct a temporary public art project as a way for the staff and board to understand the best way to move forward and gain public input. Artist, Anne-Marie Yang, created the piece, “Ephemeral Peace,” which was installed at Lexington Lake Park in De Soto for a 6-month period. This project allowed JCPRD to build a framework, gather community feedback, and determine the best funding mechanism to sustain the program. Learn More About This Artist: Ann-Marie Yang.
