Midland Marketing and CoBank use funds to add to community pride

Sep 16, 2021


Midland Marketing is proud to support projects in our communities.  Midland Marketing and CoBank grants have donated funding to the Brush the Bricks project in Hays.  Brush the Bricks plans to paint a mural on the General Office in Hays in the summer of 2022.  Brush the Bricks, a Mural Movement is an effort by multiple organizations in Downtown Hays to transform blank canvases, our buildings, into spectacular, world-class artwork that invigorates tourism and community pride.  If you have seen the murals around the community on the S & W Building you can see these are a legacy to the history of Hays and its heritage.  We are very excited to work with the artists on the ideas they have for the General office.  Stay tuned as the project starts.

Brush the Bricks will take many different forms, some will be painted by professional artists like those of Hays Artist Dennis Schiel. Some of the murals will be metal. Some of them will include community involvement in the painting process.

If you would like to find more information and how to be a donor to any of the scheduled projects you can go to Brush the Brick’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/brushthebricks, or website, https://www.downtownhays.com/brushthebricks?fbclid=IwAR1MsMpocrJ2srfDq5MpC6NCe7crcoTrlLBfnSRojOHNs7wPzEplUk2TWio.
