Guggiari Sculpture in Hays, Kansas

Guggiari SculptureThe Guggiari sculpture/monument at Hays was recently moved so that it is easily seen from Interstate 70! The piece, entitle “Homage to Kansas” was constructed in 1980 by Hermann Guggiari to commemorate the many achievements of KPP. The sculptor was inspired to create the piece during his time as an artist-in-residence at Fort Hays State University. Guggiari says that his piece represents the Kansas earth and prairie reaching toward the sky, and symbolizes the strength and idealism of the state of Kansas in its friendship with the Republic of Paraguay. Guggiari, who is still living in Asunción, was visited in September 2007 by participants in the KPP/POA-sponsored tour of South America.
