Some of the sculptures in downtown Wichita are looking a little cleaner these days thanks to Jason Lonergan, who is beginning his annual cleaning of the larger sculptures. Lonergan is contracted by the city to keep all the sculptures, big and small, clean and looking their best. His next project will be the “Feather Towers” sculptures by Vicky Scuri that line the Lewis Street and Douglas Avenue bridges.
