 Connecting communities through mural and pubic art projects

KCAIC supports public art programs across all Kansas communities.  In addition to KCAIC Mural and Public Art grants, we work in partnership with the Office of Rural Prosperity, to provide funding for communities with populations of 10,000 or fewer to create and install public works of art. These programs are designed to utilize artists and arts organizations to increase community vibrancy and provide space for artistic expression and public engagement.

See the Kansas Mural Making Guide for more information and technical assistance with public art projects.

Grant Amount

The total project cost must be at least twice the amount of the grant request. The maximum grant amount is $10,000.

There is a 1:1 match requirement for this program. The matching funds must consist of at least 50% cash expense provided by the applicant; in-kind, non-monetary donations and volunteer hours may be counted up to 50% of the required match.
