GALL Gallery Alley is a temporary placemaking initiative that transformed an underutilized alley into a vibrant public space. The 15-foot-wide alley was formerly open to vehicular traffic, causing an unsafe environment along the Douglas Avenue frontage. The goal of the alley is to accelerate revitalization in Downtown Wichita through promoting urban, walkable, people-oriented development and local art through a new urban design concept. Gallery Alley is located at 616 E. Douglas Avenue. In partnership with the adjacent property owners, Downtown Wichita received a grant from the Knight Foundation Fund at the Wichita Community Foundation to construct Gallery Alley in May 2017 and positively enhance Wichita's urban core.
