The Wichita Dome
The Wichita Dome is a sculpture inspired by the grass house architecture of The Wichita tribe whose ancestors lived in the Central and Southern Plains.
The Wichita Dome follows the successful creation of “Don’t Fence Me In,” which was situated on the west end of the 12-acre median of Kell East and Kell West freeway near the Attebury Grain Elevator. The new sculpture is being installed on the east end of the site, which will allow residents and visitors easier access to the artwork.
The contemporary design for the dome was created by local artist Erick Zambrano. Erick is a graduate of Midwestern State University and is currently enrolled in the Master’s Degree sculpture program at the University of Houston. Other artists contributing to the creation of the Wichita Dome are Alexes Anguiano, Audra Lambert, and Ramona Stegal.
