Kansas Murals: A Traveler’s Guide, a 2006 publication of the University Press of Kansas, by Lora Jost and Dave Loewenstein, with a foreword by Saralyn Reece Hardy, highlights 90 Kansas murals with a photo and short narrative, provides regional guide maps, and identifies and locates over 600 additional murals around the state. Kansas Murals was selected as a Kansas Notable Book of 2007 by the Kansas Center for the Book, affiliated with the State Library of Kansas.
As much a book on Kansas land and history as about its mural art, this is a portrait of a place and its people. From beloved cliches to unexpected innovations, Jost and Loewenstein’s selections take us from a wild-eyed John Brown to the ornate box turtle capital of the world, from silos to post offices, covered wagons to rocket ships, graffiti to architectural heaven. Read this even if Kansas is not on your itinerary. –Lucy R. Lippard, author of Lure of the Local
