The Second of Four MURALS
hung in Douglas Design District
The second of four murals commissioned by the Dougas Design District is now on display. The mural, represending the element fire by Josh Tripoli, was hung on the east side of Logan Street Fine Wood Products located at 1824 E. Douglas Ave.
The first mural by artist Tom Murillo, represents water and was completed in March and installed on the west side of The Anchor, located at 1109 E. Douglas Ave.
Two additional murals, one each from Tom Murillo and Josh Tripol, will represent wind and earth and are scheduled to debut later this year. "Both Josh and I are very excited.” Murillo told The Wichita Eagle.
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.
