WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Wichita Art Museum is spending $3 million to add new gardens, pathways and an amphitheater to its outdoor sculpture display.

The space, called the Art Garden, will open at the end of September. Eleven works already on display outdoors will be reinstalled, including bronze sculptures from Tom Otterness and Henry Moore. The outdoor art collection also includes steel, aluminum and marble sculptures.

The museum says the art will be spread over nine landscaped acres, which will feature more than 80 species of trees, shrubs and perennials. The garden also will feature a new amphitheater for outdoor performances and weddings.
