Avenue Art Days is bringing color and giving a voice to artists and designers in Wichita. Since 2015, Avenue Art Days has held six events, which included hundreds of volunteers and gained the attention of the entire city. From news outlets, to out-of-town visitors, to the residents that live, work, play and pray through the District every day, people are taking notice of the vibrancy and commerce that exists on our stretch of Douglas Avenue . With over 100+ murals painted in the District as a part of Avenue Art Days, they are providing community, connectivity and creativity in order to improve economic development, public and mental health, and perception in Wichita.
