2011 Mural Begins

New Mural Project at the Great Mural Wall

First Community Meeting

Saturday, May 28th

10 am

Blue Planet Cafe

110 SE 8th

Topeka, KS

In this, the seventh panel on the Great Wall, lead artists Ashley Laird and Dave Loewenstein will work with local artists, arts advocates and neighborhood residents on a sixty-foot mural that celebrates the heritage and continued vitality of Topeka’s creative community.

With looming cuts to arts spending in Kansas and across the nation, the theme of this mural is especially relevant. Through this project, we want to focus attention on the brilliant arts community taking shape here by highlighting Final Fridays, NOTO, reThink Topeka, and the countless other arts offerings sprouting up around town, while also looking back at the many individual artists and organizations that have nourished and inspired its development.
