We worked on large graffiti-style artwork during two paint days in June and the results are spectacular. Now we will continue that work by helping to continue community engagement at the park. The youth who use the park were very excited and tell us that it makes their skating videos look much more "rad" and make their park a better place to spend time.
Our next project will be a mural painted adjacent to the Brown v. Board National Historic Site and will feature a design created by artist Michael Toombs along with students from all across Topeka who are participating in the Living the Dream Art Contest!
ABOUT THE TOPEKA MURAL PROJECT
The Topeka Mural Project is a program of ARTSConnect in partnership with the Topeka Police Department, Safe Streets Coalition, and Downtown Topeka, Inc. The goal of the Topeka Mural Project is to make Topeka a safer more vibrant, prosperous place to live. Read more from Americans for the Arts about why public art is critical to our cities.
