Wichita Murals

Have a fun and totally FREE day exploring Wichita’s murals. Over the past few years, we’ve seen dozens of colorful murals adorning the sides of buildings, fences, and underpasses. Sometimes you just catch a glimpse of them as you drive by; others we have only seen in pictures. But there’s nothing like getting out and getting your own picture in front of one of these cool mural masterpieces.

If you have a cellphone and a willingness to explore, that’s all you need need to go mural-hunting in Wichita. But we have found a few resources that will make it easier for you to track down all the Wichita murals and learn a little something about the artists who painted them.

This is something TOTALLY FREE to do in Wichita! And you know you’re cool if you’ve actually laid eyes on these Wichita murals in person.

When you’re out mural hunting, you might also want to stop into some of the businesses sporting these beauties. That adds to the price tag just a little bit, but a coffee, donut, or doo-dad representing Doo Dah won’t usually break the bank.

Wichita Mural App

To make it easier on us, there is a Wichita Mural App so you know where to look. However, it is
only available for Apple products. To find out more about the murals and who painted them, visit
the Avenue Art Days website.

With there being 108 murals around town, it can get a bit overwhelming so we narrowed it down to
some super cool ones and where they are located.

The Douglas Design District hosts Avenue Art Days, the event that prompted the birth of many of these murals in the first place. If you have an iPhone or other Apple device, you can download a handy free app that not only gives you image previews of the Avenue Art Days murals, but also driving directions to each one.

You might have heard, for instance, that Wichita boasts the largest single-artist mural in the entire world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. This mural is on Visit Wichita’s map.

The Horizontes mural is on the side of a grain elevator at 519 E. 20th St. You may have seen it if you’ve driven on E. 21st Street over near Broadway or Mosley streets. If traffic isn’t too bad, you might have time to catch a glimpse of the mural when you’re driving south on I-135 or west on K96. KMUW has a good article on it here.

Miro Mural

Of course, the Wichita mural that was a landmark even before mural-hunting was a popular Wichita activity is a mosaic by the world-famous Spanish artist Joan Miró. His Personnages Oiseaux, or Bird People, is made up of hundreds of thousands of glass tiles and can be viewed on the wall of the Ulrich Museum of Art on the Wichita State University campus. 

The Miro was removed for restoration in 2011, which took five years to complete. Now the mural is back up at the university campus and should not be missed on a mural tour of Wichita!
