Placemaking project

Community art is a way to connect the community and provide a sense of pride about where one lives. This project is a big undertaking could not be accomplished without several fantastic stakeholders.

  • Barton Arts Movement for partnering in this event

  • Melanie Ryan for lending her phenomenal artistic abilities

  • And our sponsors and donors for making this project financially possible! Wheatland Electric, Great Bend Foundation, Barton Community College, Sheryl Cheely, MPIRE Realty Group, Spectrum CPA Partners LLC, Brentwood Builders, Dedra Goodenough, Alan & Gail Moeder, Jane Isern, Rachel Mawhirther, and Jennifer Stoddard

  • Does the project end here? No! Watching positive comments roll in on social media brought us so much joy and we want to keep the positivity flowing! Tag your photos from Final Friday and on the Art Alley with #GreatBendisAlive or text your photos to 620-617-0332. 

What to expect?

 

Come after work with your friends, family or coworkers and sit outside with a beverage in your hand and enjoy some great food, great music, and a great time!
