Artist and Co-Author of Kansas Murals: A Traveler's Guide

If These Walls Could Talk

Murals seem to be nearly everywhere in Kansas towns, both big and small. However, it’s not a new tradition! From the iconic John Steuart Curry murals in the state’s capitol to the frescoes of Jean Charlot in Atchison, and the many murals by artists commissioned as part of the New Deal, murals have long graced our public spaces. This talk will explore the artists, meanings, and impetus behind the state’s rich collection of public murals, and how they reflect an image of who we are as Kansans.
