Next date: Saturday, June 22, 2024 | 02:00 AM to Monday, September 30, 2024 | 11:00 PM

Five poles along shore at Lake Lenexa

The Peace Poles Community Art Project – a series of poles designed by community members and adorned with original art and messages of peace – is on display at Black Hoof Park May 1 – Sept. 30. The purpose of the outdoor exhibit is to inspire peace, hope, creativity and community involvement.

Community members will get the opportunity to collaborate and leave their own mark of creativity, color and message of peace on two additional peace poles for the exhibit at the Lenexa Art Fair May 11.

Project overview

Residents, community groups, businesses and artists submitted designs to be considered for the exhibit in January. The sketches then went before a jury review process and applicants whose designs were approved had six weeks to complete their poles.

A judging panel, including art professionals, will recognize the top designs in June.

In November, a public auction of the poles will take place and funds will support a charitable cause. 

The Peace Poles Community Art Project was organized as a partnership between the Lenexa Rotary Club, Lenexa Arts Council and the City of Lenexa.
