Douglass Mural Project

Theme:

Country:

Eligibility:

The City of Manhattan is a vibrant community of nearly 55,000 residents in northeast Kansas, two hours from Kansas City.  Manhattan is home to Kansas State University, a leading academic, research, and collegiate athletics institution, as well as Manhattan Christian College and Manhattan Area Technical College. An additional asset is the adjacent Fort Riley U.S. Army installation, home of the 1st Infantry Division.

The City of Manhattan, Kansas, seeks proposals for a public art mural project. Artists are invited to submit a proposal for this exciting opportunity to provide a large-scale work of art to be created inside the new Douglass Activity Center, currently under construction at 925 Yuma Street, in Manhattan, Kansas.

This mural project represents a unique opportunity for the selected artist to create a piece of public art representing the Black community in Manhattan. The mural’s theme should speak to the cultural and historical legacy of the area while celebrating and honoring the strength and resilience of the Black community. The mural should celebrate social justice, the creative cultural landscape, and changing attitudes toward racial equality. This mural will be the pinnacle of the Douglass Activity Center and will instill a sense of pride for the City’s diverse demographic.
