As part of the Dodge City Days presentations, the Dodge City Public Library will host "If These Walls Could Talk: Kansas Murals" at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 31.

The presentation was made through a partnership with Dodge City Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Depot Theater Company and Humanities Kansas.

The program is open to the community and free to attend and will be made by Dave Loewenstein.

The presentation will be an exploration of artists, meanings and stories behind some of the the state’s collection of public murals.

Loewenstein, a muralist, printmaker, arts organizer and co-author of "Kansas Murals: A Traveler’s Guide," has more than 20 public works of art in Kansas and across the United States, Northern Ireland, South Korea and Brazil.

"Kansas has more than 1,000 murals," said Loewenstein. "They are our great outdoor museum, and tell us much about our history, hopes and dreams."

Part of the Humanities Kansas Movement of Ideas Speakers Bureau, the "If These Walls Could Talk: Kansas Murals" presentation and workshop is designed to share stories that inspire, spark conversations that inform, and generate insights that strengthen civic engagement.
