This art installation, inspired by the Flint Hills of Kansas, aims to capture the stunning beauty and diversity of this unique and extraordinary landscape. The rolling hills and tallgrass prairie ecosystem of the Flint Hills offers a tapestry of color and form that is truly awe-inspiring. From the golden hues of the sun-drenched grasses, to the bursts of color that come from wildflowers, to the deep green of the tree stands found near water on the prairie, the Flint Hills might be described as an understated riot of color and life, which this installation captures.

"During my time in Wichita, Kansas, I am always in awe of the beautiful colors and forms of the landscape. In this art installation, I seek to capture the beauty and majesty of the Flint Hills, to bring this unique landscape to life in a new and exciting way, through a combination of sculptural and interactive elements. I hope to create an experience that is both visually stunning and emotionally resonant. I invite you to join this journey of discovery and to be inspired by the magic of the Flint Hills of Kansas." -Sarah Alsaied
