Kenner Art Walk
The Kenner Artwalk is a public art display created to bring art in the form of sculptures and structures to the residents and visitors of the City of Kenner. Located on major thoroughfares, at public parks, and in other public spaces, these donated pieces provide individuals with an opportunity to view and appreciate art in an informal setting.
The majority of the Kenner Artwalk has been made possible by the kindness and generosity of Mr. Henry Shane, a lifelong Kenner resident, and his wife, Mrs. Pat Shane. William Henry Shane, Jr. (born June 29, 1937) is a successful businessman, philanthropist, and avid collector of art and classic cars. Henry and his wife, Pat, have gifted 39 sculptures to the City of Kenner to date in an effort to beautify our public thoroughfares and make art accessible to all. His investment in our community has resulted in increased property values, a source of civic pride, and a greater appreciation of the arts. Sculptures have been donated by local and regional philanthropists or are on loan through museums and private collections.
