Take a drive through the north side of Wichita and you might notice some new faces. They live on the walls of buildings, under bridges and on other structures that weren’t necessarily designed to be painted, but were anyway.

 

 

“To paint a mural in a public space,” said Wichita artist Armando Minjarez, “it’s itself a form of invasion.”

Wichita will soon be home to the world’s largest mural painted by a single artist.

 

The mural is on the east side of the Beachner grain elevator on 21st Street. It’s visible west of I-135 as well as westbound K-96.

Another colorful mural is now on display in Wichita's historic Dunbar District. It's part of the Horizontes, or Horizons, project that's helping to revive the once-thriving neighborhood.
