Chester I. Lewis Reflection Square Park

In collaboration with Anthony Joiner of Mulberry Art, two artists, Ellamonique Baccus and Matthew Mazzotta, were selected to commemorate the life and work of Kansas civil rights leader Chester I. Lewis. The park also serves as a secondary entry plaza for the Kansas Health Science Center - Kansas College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Feedback from Lewis' family, stakeholders, and the community helped shape the final design. It includes ornamental paving, lighting, interpretative art features, and seating areas to relax, study, and gather for special events.

More information about the park.

As Art Consultants, Mulberry and s p l i c e . ART worked with the artists to provide all necessary deliverables from schematic design phase through to construction drawings. This team engaged extensively with the community throughout the entire process, both in outreach and the research and further promotion of Lewis' legacy.
