In the summer of 2017, the Topeka Mural Project will take on two projects - a storage container owned by the Master Gardeners which is south of the Expocentre and adjacent to the Shunga Trail. Artist John Sebelius will be helping to design and paint this project.
Our other main projects is a spray paint project at the Rip-On Skate park, located just south of 21st & Washburn in Shunga Glen. This project is possible in conjunction with Shawnee County Parks + Recreation and with the talent and expertise of Luis Estrada & Jason Reidel. We are inviting artists of all ages and levels of experience 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 June 17th & 24th - with the 18th & 25th reserved in case of inclement weather. These dates are weather dependent.
ABOUT THE TOPEKA MURAL PROJECT
