KCCA, along with other organizations in the community, is working with the Garden Committee on the grand opening of the Chinese-US Sculpture Garden, the first of its kind in the Midwest. An idea originated from renowned Chinese artist Kwan Wu living locally in Olathe, it has become a full-fledged project supported by the City of Overland Park and its Park & Recreation Bureau. The sculpture garden will be located on the land inside Overland Park Arboretum and Botanic Garden that is donated by the City. First batch of 11 large-scale outdoor sculptures donated by many renowned artists in China and by Kwan Wu himself will be displayed in the garden. Free refreshment will be provided after the ribbon cutting ceremony. There is also preshow commemorating the event by local Chinese dance groups and the drum team.
