Archive Page on;y. Glen Stark Park has been permamently closed. The city says that the art was weathering outdoors and is temporarily stored, but they have not said where it is start or anything about future plance.

Glenn Stark was a grassroots artist who did fine wood carving and built larger sculptures using a metal framework and concrete. His work was displayed at his home in Kingman, Kansas until his death in 2014. The art has since been moved to other locations including this park in downtown Kingman where about 20 of his concrete sculptures have been moved.

It is good to see this work being preserved and honored, but at this time the park lacks character. Hopefully more will be done to display the work in an interesting way as the park continues to develop. Please go on to Page 2 and Page 3 to see how the art was originally displayed at Glenn and Mary Stark's home.
