A variety of dinner and beverage options will be available for purchase from a number of local food trucks and KC Hopps. This summertime happy hour celebration will also feature live music from Timberfall, and fresh produce sold by area farmers.
At 6 p.m., attendees will be encouraged to walk down to the corner of Merriam and Johnson Drives for the presentation of “Still Time.” Remarks from artist Dan Maginn and Merriam Council Member Christine Hands will introduce the new public art creation to the community and the Merriam landscape.
“Still Time” was created by DRAW Architecture + Urban Design, in collaboration with sound artist Paul Rudy. It features a 16-foot limestone tower, which houses a large-scale wind chime. The tower and surrounding park creates a new gathering space for Merriam residents and visitors.
