ICON Artwork's featured artist Robin Richerson presented the City of Lenexa's newest art acquisition entitled "Frenzied Flight" in a Dedication Ceremony held at Central Green Park on May 9th. It is an abstract, mythological depiction of three birds in flight that are all fighting for the same fish. Lenexa has been building its collection of public art since its first acquisition in the early 1980s. Robin Richerson's "Frenzied Flight" cast bronze sculpture is the newest addition to the collection of more than 20 two and three-dimensional pieces located throughout the city on public property.
Central Green is a 10-acre park located at 87th Street and Penrose Lane within City Center North in Lenexa, KS. Central Green has an open play area, a large trail system that connects into Parkhurst, cascading ponds with stepping stones, natural areas and extensive landscaping.
"I would like to thank the Lenexa Arts Council and the Parks & Recreation Department for their assistance, their faith in me and for allowing me to create this piece of art for the City of Lenexa, of which my family and I are proud citizens,” stated Robin Richerson during the dedication. "My design concept was to create a large subject that involved a lot of movement and a good deal of negative or unused space. The sculpture arises out of the wing tip of one bird, which then in turn supports all the other birds and fish.”
