    • The project includes the famous sundial bas-relief, a timeless representation of the city, its people and significance in the history of Kansas. This piece is one of the nation’s best and most frequently cited examples of the incorporation of public art into a highway corridor. The art has a scale and character appropriate to a freeway condition. The art also provides a great example of “low cost-high impact” design that utilizes the economy of form liners while providing a quality art piece.” Douglas Mann, ASLA, HTNB Corp(12).
