Ellsworth County Economic Development received a $10,000 grant (with in-kind match dollars) from the Kansas Office of Rural Prosperity and Kansas Department of Commerce.  We are thankful for this opportunity kick-start our beautification project!

“Art, and murals in particular, help bring communities together to celebrate the history, culture and unique characteristics of their rural towns,” said Director of the Office of Rural Prosperity Trisha Purdon. “The Rural Mural program helps these communities showcase those amazing characteristics to their current residents, visitors and to the entire State of Kansas for generations to come.” 


Community beautification comes in all forms, including murals. With the use of grant funds and local artistry, we continue our Mural Making Campaign which began in 2022.  Stay tuned here for the next round of grant funding and how you can apply for to host a mural at your business or create a mural as a local artist.
