Long Description:
A total of 21 bronzes up and down Douglas Ave, market Ave, and in pocket parks along these two streets in Wichita KS liven up the streetscape. Since most were wearing hand-crocheted green shamrock necklaces on St Patrick's weekend 2013, they have OBVIOUSLY been embraced by the community :)
