DDD Murals

The mural, representing the element "Earth" was created by Thomas Murillo, son of celebrated artist Steve Murillo. Thomas also created the "Water" mural now hanging at The Anchor at 1109 E. Douglas.

Josh Tripoli, created two of the four murasl - one representing "Fire" is hanging at Logan Street Fine Wood Products located at 1824 E. Douglas Ave, and one representing "Air" which was recently installed at Douglas Photographic Imaging, located at 2300 E. Douglas.

The murals were partially funded by DDD and a $7,764 Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission grant through the Kansas Department of Commerce. The goal of this project is to provide an outlet for local artists and to draw visitors into the district.
