Apply for the Alley Doors Project

The Alley Doors project repurposes alley and back-of-building doors and turns them into a discovery-driven urban gallery. In 2019, Kansas based artists contributed to an online artwork database. Participating property and business owners used this database to select artwork that was then printed on heavy-duty vinyl and applied to their alley or back-of-building doors. View a press release announcing the artists selected to contribute to the online database. Doors range from $900-$1,400 depending on size and preparation necessary to adhere the vinyl to the door.

The goal of this project is to increase foot-traffic and visibility of overlooked spaces downtown and thus enhance safety, combat vandalism and create surprises for passersby. The door murals are accompanied by an artist title card and alleyway signage.

Downtown Wichita received a grant from the Knight Foundation Fund at the Wichita Community Foundation to launch the Alley Doors project.
