It is to be expected that not all murals may be completely captured at any given point in time, as public art may be created and/or destroyed fairly rapidly. If you have further information regarding local murals or local mural artists, please contact Rachel Crane, project coordinator, at 316-978-5078 or by email at: rachel.crane@wichita.edu
