(WICHITA, Kan.) — A moving sculpture more than four stories tall will mark the Rotary Club of Wichita's 100 year anniversary.
Monday the club donated $300,000 for the sculpture and urban park at the corner of 2nd and St. Francis. The sculpture will go on the property of the old Coleman building, which is being torn down to make room for parking.
The sculpture will be called the Rotary Time Tower. It will move with the wind, mark time by producing sound every 15 minutes and be lit at night. The park will also have an interpretive wall telling the story of the Rotary Club.
Two brick arches from the Coleman building will also be left on site to be used as a pedestrian entrance to the parking lot. The City of Wichita will develop landscaping for the area as part of its existing downtown master plan. Coleman is also giving money toward the project.
