This is the last week to vote for your choices in the 8 Art Wonders of Kansas competition. Voting ends on October 15th.

The Red Barn Studio and the Birger Sandzen Gallery both have a chance to be part of the 8 Art Wonders of Kansas. We know how special these places are, now it’s our chance to tell the world! To vote, head over to or get a paper ballot at the Lindsborg Chamber of Commerce office.
