MCPHERSON COUNTY —  The Inman Museum Association is excited to announce the commissioning of their new mural project on the iconic grain elevator east of Highway 61 when entering Inman.

This significant project is part of a broader initiative to celebrate Kansas heritage with 150 years of Turkey Red Winter Wheat and the settlers that brought it to Kansas.

The mural is being painted by Mindy Allen of Mindy’s Murals, a renowned muralist based in Junction City, Kansas. Known for her vibrant and intricate designs, Mindy’s Murals transforms public spaces into visual masterpieces that reflect the unique spirit of their locations.

“We are thrilled to bring this project to life,” said Ron Regehr, representative of Inman Museum. “The mural will serve as a landmark for Inman history and future aspirations as we embark on a new 15,000 sq. ft. facility that will share the stories of custom cutters from the Inman/Buhler area and across the Great Plains. It’s a beautiful way to celebrate our heritage and welcome travelers passing through the area.”

This project is made possible through the support and collaboration with Inman residents, local organizations, the Kansas Department of Commerce and the Office of Rural Prosperity.

Surrounding community are invited to witness the mural’s progress at the Inman Harvest Celebration on June 29th. The celebration includes an Inman parade, fishing derby, custom cutting demonstration, pedal tractor pull, food trucks and fireworks. See event details at: www.inmanharvestcelebration.com.
