In the spring and summer of 2017, one of our projects will be a spray paint project at the Rip-On Skate park, located just south of 21st & Washburn in Shunga Glen. We are inviting artists of all ages and talents to submit artwork for this space. In order to paint in the skate park, we need to approve your design, so please use the links below to send us your design. The Topeka Mural Project will supply Montana brand spray paint at no charge along with priming and sealing of your artwork as is appropriate. Paint days in 2017 will be May 13, 14, 20 & 21. These dates are weather dependent.
ABOUT THE TOPEKA MURAL PROJECT
ARTSConnect has formed a partnership with the Topeka Police Department, Safe Streets Coalition, and Downtown Topeka, Inc. 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.
You can find our murals at Meadows Elementary School, Avondale East NetReach Center, in Oakland at the corner of Seward & Lake and at the corner of Huntoon & Lane on the WCW Property Managment building. Jamie Colon serves as lead artist for for these murals and we are so grateful for his immense time and talent.
The first mural was dedicated to the community on June 7, 2013 – located at 1120 NE Seward, designed by Jamie Colon & Maria Guzman and painted by more than 50 members of the community. Our next project will be the pedestrian bridge just east of Branner on 4th Street.
