Alley Doors Project

The Alley Doors project will repurpose alley and back-of-building doors and turn them into a discovery-driven urban gallery. Kansas artists were invited to contribute to an online artwork database where downtown property and business owners can select artwork to be printed on heavy-duty vinyl and applied to their alley or back-of-building doors. The Call for Entry is now closed and selection of artwork by property and business owners is underway. View a press release announcing the artists selected to contribute to the online database.

A goal of this project is to increase foot-traffic and visibility of overlooked space in downtown and thus enhance safety, combat vandalism and create surprises for passersby. The door murals will be accompanied by an artist title card and alleyway signage. Estimated completion is spring 2020.

Downtown Wichita received a grant from the Knight Foundation Fund at the Wichita Community Foundation to create unexpected art destinations.
