10 E 1ST AVENUE | 620.663.1596 | TECHINCARTGALLERY.COM In 2015, TECH purchased the former Midwest Feed Building and moved their Adult Life Skills (ALS) program to this location. With the early success of the art program, TECH had the vision for an on—site art studio in the unused portion of the building, but needed to raise the funds before completing this remodel project. Through fundraising efforts, which included a benefit concert featuring Suzy Bogguss, as well as a generous gift from the Bobby Megli Estate, the TECH Art Studio quickly became a reality.

STRATACA

C U L T U R E

3650 E. Ave. G UNDERKANSAS.ORG 620.662.1425 Strataca has celebrated 10 years of taking visitors 650 feet underground into a working salt mine. Guests are able to explore the mine by taking a train ride through one of the largest salt deposits in the world. Another option is the salt safari — a guided experience into not-so-explored parts of the mine. Unusual formations are pointed out by trained guides. Exhibits on the self-guided museum tour underground include heavy equipment, dynamite displays and other items that are a window into another time. Cars and a tractor, as well as the mining equipment illustrate the ingenuity that was required. Items once abandoned as trash are now fascinating displays. Museum exhibits include some of the unusual items stored underground by Underground Vaults and Storage. The climate is perfect for safe storage and this company preserves items from every state and many foreign countries. On display are costumes from Hollywood blockbusters. One of the Eight Wonders of Kansas, Strataca is the only attraction of its kind in the western hemisphere. Visit underkansas.org for more information or to make a reservation.

H O U RS: Tuesday — Saturday 9 a.m. — 5 p.m. Sunday 1 p.m. — 5 p.m. Closed Mondays except for Holidays
