HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Hutchinson Chamber of Commerce and Visit Hutch has had a presence at the Kansas State Fair at the small pavilion near the large rocket. Now, they want to introduce a new mural for the visitors information center.
Local artist Brady Scott created the mural "Cotton Candy Sunset at the Fair", including an iconic silhouette of the Kansas State Fair midway against a rural Kansas backdrop. Visit Hutch was awarded a 50/50 matching grant through the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission. In part, funding was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
A special ribbon-cutting ceremony for the mural will be during the fair Thursday, September 15 at 9:15 a.m. at the mural site. Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, as well as Kansas Tourism Director Bridgette Jobe, have been invited to attend.
