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.

New mural locations will be at Meadows Elementary School, Avondale East NetReach Center and at the corner of Huntoon & Lane on the WCW Property Managment

building. Jamie Colon will serve as lead artist for the Avondale East mural, having talked extensively with neighborhood stakeholders about the subject matter. Painting on the new walls will begin this summer and continue through the fall. We will have a live streaming video courtesy of ISG Technologies during the painting of each mural – so even if you can’t be there in person, you can still get in on the action!

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. Read the article from the Topeka Capital-Journal about the dedication ceremony here.

rch suggests public art as a solution to property crime as well as enhancing community pride and livability. The paintings offer an opportunity to reflect a neighborhood’s heritage, promote the

work of local artists and provide an opportunity for a community to get to know their neighbors while working for the common good.

Topeka Mural Project - Oakland: June 6, 2013

Topeka Mural Project – Oakland: June 6, 2013

Property values will increase as citizens feel safe to invest in their property.  Overall quality of life will increase, and this will make Topeka more attractive to businesses to open or relocate, adding to the city’s economic base.

We need your help. Be part of the solution, display your talents, be discovered, and take pride in your neighborhood.

Sketch and submit a mural design to ARTSConnect by email or by postal mail (515 SE Kansas Ave. Topeka KS, 66603), and artists will be notified as we select murals to fit in locations around Topeka.

Not an artist? Not a problem. We need financial support as well.  Make a donation to ARTSConnect: we are a 501(c)(3) organization.  Checks can be made out to ARTSConnect Topeka; Attn: Mural Project. Or, you can always donate online.

Unable to make a donation?  You can still help.  Watch for times and dates for mural project locations and come on out and help paint.  We’d love to have you.

Thank you to hundreds of individual donors and the following community partners for their support of this project!!
