Salina hosting Artwork Alley Mural Expo ’22 beginning Friday

As people come to downtown Salina this week they may notice work in progress on large pieces of art in the parking lot at 140 S. Fifth St.

The city has invited artists from Kansas and surrounding states to take part in the Artwork Alley Mural Expo ’22.

The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC), a part of the Kansas Department of Commerce, along with some funding by the National Endowment of the Arts awarded a grant to the Salina Arts and Humanities for murals.

“It was funded to support the Make A Mark Mural initiative,” said Anna Pauscher Morawitz, the operations and development manager for Salina Arts and Humanities.

That mural initiative includes three parts, the mural on the back wall of the new stage at Ash Street and Santa Fe Avenue, the new stage that will be located at Campbell Plaza and this area that will known as Artwork Alley.
