The Office of Rural Prosperity: Rural Murals
The Office of Rural Prosperity (ORP) advocates for and promotes rural Kansas and focuses on efforts designed to aid rural improvements. This program provides funding for communities with populations of 15,000 or less to reinvigorate spaces by creating new murals or public art that incorporate the community’s history, culture, heritage, tourism, or other community led art piece. This mural and public art grant program is intended to support projects in rural communities that are immediately ready to begin work on their mural, with community engagement, location selection, site approvals, and muralist selection being completed by May 1, 2023.
ORP Rural Murals and Public Art Grant open now until May 1st.
Painted by Hunter Sinclair Myers of the Brickmob group, from the KCAIC Mural & Public Art roster. The mural is located in downtown Osawatomie at 500 Main Street.
