Come out and watch a mural artist work first hand, as he/she creates the annual Sand Creek Summer Daze Festival Art Composition! The artist (to be chosen soon), will be painting a 4’x8′ mural portrait representing Sand Creek and the festival.
Last year’s artist was Brady Scott, who painted the 2018 composition shown above. Brady has created several well-known public art murals in Hutchinson, including the Hutchinson Women’s Center Lobby and the Boys and Girls Club Shadduck Park Playground. He has painted murals for the Kansas City Masterpiece Mural Festival, Tulsa Habit Mural Festival, Wichita’s Avenue Art Days & The Plaza Walls Mural Expo in Oklahoma City.
Newton Mural & Arts Project & Sand Creek Summer Daze Festival Collaboration
The Newton Mural and Arts Project is teaming with the SCSD Festival to promote their mission of murals and outdoor art in Newton. The Newton Murals and Arts Project exists to develop and install murals and other outdoor art for the purpose of adding beauty and interest in Newton’s downtown business district and other locations in the city. It has established the Newton Murals and Arts Project Fund at the Central Kansas Community Foundation. The fund is a component fund of the foundation and contributions to it are tax deductible.
In partnership with the festival they will be displaying and selling smaller art compositions to raise money for projects planned through the Newton area. Stop by their tent at the Diggin’ the Artz area and see colorful art works for sale of some great local artists and help beautify Newton!
