Art in Roeland Park is Happening Now!

MuralSneakPeek

ArtistsThe Roeland Park Arts Advisory Committee has developed a project to signify unity in our community. Made possible by a grant from the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission ( KCAIC ) and the National Endowment for the Arts ( NEA ), the 311 foot long concrete retaining wall northeast of Aldi's on 47th Street will be painted by seven artists. This mural will reflect aspects of our community incorporating the values of our city's residents. So keep an eye out for amazing changes on the wall! 

UPDATE! The Roeland Park Arts Advisory Committee is excited to announce that beginning stages for the mural will begin the week of August 9th with the application of primer. Designs will follow soon after, watch for the mural to continue as it develops through the weeks of August and September. We look forward to sharing future dates and developments!

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities visit http://www.arts.gov."
