A Great Place to Land in Downtown Overland Park
A Great Place to Land is an artwork by Gary Kahle located in Overland Park which was made using Zahner art fabrication services. Completed in 2006, the sculpture projects into the sky at the intersection of Conser and Santa Fe Drive. The permanent outdoor public artwork depicts two birds flying upwards in unison, and the work was provided by the Arts and Recreation Foundation of Overland Park in Overland Park, Kansas.
Zahner worked closely with Kahle to manufacture A Great Place to Land. Kahle came to the company’s headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri with a small maquette and worked directly with Zahner engineers and craftsmen to translate the maquette’s form into a 17-foot polished stainless steel form. The accomplished sculptor has worked with Zahner on a number of sculptural projects over the years.
