CityArts has an upcoming show Art Lives. It will run from March 29th through April 21st.

This show is a reflection and collaboration of 24 artists. One year ago the state cut funding for the arts in Kansas. However, art is alive in Kansas and this show according to Rachel Epp Buller, “offers serious reflections on the state of the arts in Kansas.”

Be sure to stop by the gallery and support the arts in Kansas. It will be a wonderful show with something for everyone.

The Kansas State Capitol Building in Topeka is searching for an artist to paint a new mural. According to Kansas Representative Elaine Bowers, the mural will depict Brown v. the Topeka Board of Education.

This is a national search, although Representative Bowers is hoping to see submissions from artists in North Central Kansas.

If you are interested in applying, please visit Salina Journal News. The deadline is May 1, 2012.

Good luck,
