Coffeyville, Kansas: Field of Weird College Wood Art

A vacant lot is populated with upright stumps and poles carved and painted into a variety of odd art by the students of Coffeyville Community College. It's been baffling passers-by since at least 2014.

Field of Weird College Wood Art

Pretty easy to find and very fun to look at. A pile of scrap in the back suggests that some old sculptures were recently taken down and replaced with new ones. That said, I saw some of the ones from RA pictures still standing. There were school supplies, animals, and aliens!

Field of College Art Carvings

Coffeyville Community College students create art out of wood pieces. They are all displayed on a corner lot across from one of the college buildings. The projects are quite diverse.

[Kim Anderson, 10/24/2019]

Despite the temporary nature of most student project art, the sculptures in this field have stood since at least 2014.
