Our work to bring more art to public spaces continues in 2022 with a four-story mural installation in Downtown Wichita Falls. Artists and project designers Jesse Baggett and Steve Hilton will work with MSU Texas Fine Arts students to complete this project.

Margie Reese, Senior Program Manager of the Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture, said, “We are pleased to continue our strong partnership with the City of Wichita Falls in ensuring the arts are available and accessible to all residents of our city. This project will result in a signature work of art in downtown Wichita Falls, appealing to residents and visitors as a welcoming signal that our city is vibrant and open for business.”

This project has received federal funding through the National Endowment for the Arts, state funding through the Texas Commission on the Arts, and local donations and funds through the Wichita Falls 4B Sales Tax Corporation. The mural pays tribute to our community’s resilience and the respect we have gained from acknowledging the diversity of everyone who calls Wichita Falls home.
