So a velociraptor, a feather and some melty-gooey popsicles stroll in to Downtown Lee’s Summit.
Something exciting for has made its way to Lee’s Summit just in time for this socially distant summer! Visitors can enjoy six public art sculptures that make up the first ever Downtown Sculpture Walk. From a 10-foot long velociraptor on the prowl and frozen popsicles glistening in the afternoon sun, to a solar powered “orb” that lights up the sidewalk at night. Grab yourself a cup a coffee and enjoy these sculptures as you window shop through downtown.
