Those organic, often narrow and winding, street art/graffiti tagged thoroughfares that we are drawn to are often an open secret to bohemian neighborhoods in cities; so full of life, these alleys of discovery tell you that dynamic minds are here, ready to interact with you. In recent years the concept has been adopted as a way to revitalize a vein that has gone dormant in downtowns as well – inviting, encouraging a series of artists to adorn one patch of the public dispatch, paving a visual tour by foot to remind you that planned public space can be welcoming place.
Here in Salina, Kansas, murals are a part of a greater downtown art rejuvenation along with multiple construction projects in the historic district is being revitalized and transformed – with a combination of publicly and privately funded initiatives. Directed by Salina Arts and Humanities, the selection of artists painting friendly themes and styles are mainly local and regional in origin.
Today we have a good selection of recent murals in Artwork Alley and shots of the artists at work.
