Century ll Gallery

Century II is an Iconic building that has been part of our landscape for over 50 years. It was built to commemorate the 100 year Centennial anniversary of Wichita's incorporation in 1870 and to express aspirations for the next 100 years. The public came up with the name "Century II" to represent the next 100 years of Wichita's future. Century II's modern architectural style is influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright with the design elements of the Kansas prairie. Architects Roy Varenhorst and John Hickman were students of Taliesin West, a school for apprentice architects the Wrights built in the desert near Scottsdale, Arizona.

The attractive, blue-domed building is recognized by everyone as they fly into Wichita Eisenhower Airport. See for yourself why this building means so much to us by viewing the images here in our Century ll gallery. In Wichita, Kansas, this historic performing arts complex must be preserved and used by future generations.
