Douglas Design District

MURAL UNVEILING PARTY - Success!

The fourth and final mural commissioned by the Douglas Design District was unveiled at Watermark Books in Lincoln Heights Village at Douglas and Oliver on November 1!

A large crown turned out to see the latest mural, enjoy fall refreshments and Shop the Shops!

DDD President Susan Downey from Carson Bank introduced the talented young local artists Thomas Murillo and Josh Tripoli. Lavonta Williams, District 1 City Commissioner was in attendance and congratulated DDD for promoting art in the district, but more importantly promoting and encouraging the work of the two local artists.

“I think it’s so cool because it’s all local,” said Martha Gregg of Walter Morris & Sons, the owners of Lincoln Heights Village. “The artists are local, the merchants are all local and the merchants are all committed to the center. It’s just a great addition. And it’s a great tie-in to the Douglas Design District’s efforts to revitalize East Douglas.”

Tom Murillo and Josh Tripoli

The 4th mural represents the element "Earth" and was created by Thomas Murillo. Thomas also created the "Water" mural now hanging at The Anchor at 1109 E. Douglas.

Josh Tripoli, created two of the four murals - 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. DDD Murals

Fork & Fennel NOW OPEN!!!

Fork and Fennel BuildingSchane Gross is impulsive, she admits. And she’s also a thinker. An idea person. Someone whose mind is in constant motion

That’s how she ended up with a third business, College Hill’s about-to-open Fork & Fennel at 3425 E. Douglas, despite the fact that she already owned one successful business and had just opened another. The Anchor, a popular downtown bar at 1109 E. Douglas, is about to turn 10. Douglas Avenue Chop Shop, a high-end butcher shop next door to the Anchor, opened earlier this year.
