Aug 13, 2008 | Art Finalists to be Announced August 28
The 8 Wonders of Kansas Art finalists will be announced at the Kansas Sampler Center near Inman on August 28 at 1:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

Art is the second of eight rural culture elements that is being showcased in the 8 Wonders contests. The architecture contest was completed June 30 and results are posted at www.8wonders.org. After a four-month focus on art, the elements of commerce, cuisine, customs, geography, history, and people will be featured.

Public voting to determine the 8 Wonders of Kansas Art will take place from August 28 through October 15. The top 8 will be announced on October 31.

The Inman-based Foundation has long used the eight elements to help see a community with new eyes. The series of contests are designed to educate the public about what there is to see and do in Kansas and to encourage travel.
