Many of the city’s museums will keep normal business hours next week-- except for the holiday itself-- which gives Wichitans a chance to show off their city.</p><p> Wed, 14 Nov 2012 11:00:00 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 8464 at http://kmuw.org Art: Touring Wichita Art Review: Keeper of the Plains http://kmuw.org/post/art-review-keeper-plains <p>The Keeper of the Plains is a monumental sculpture that marks the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas Rivers. Rising 44 feet in the air, this Cor-Ten steel sculpture of a Native American chief is a popular site for Wichita visitors and residents alike. The proud figure stands tall with his back arched, offering something invisible to the sky with his upturned palms. The crisp lines of the stylized figure give it striking silhouette. But the large headdress and waving fringe gives the figure movement and life.</p> Wed, 16 May 2012 12:20:18 +0000 Lindsey Herkommer DeVries 5936 at http://kmuw.org Art Review: Keeper of the Plains
