Beachner Grain Elevator Mural
This beautiful mural on the north Wichita grain elevator is not only the largest mural in the world painted by a single artist, but also holds the Guinness World Record. The mural is part of the Horizontes Project, an artist-driven effort in Wichita aimed at connecting two underrepresented neighborhoods – the predominantly Latino NorthEnd and historically African American Northeast, both of which are separated by large grain elevators along the industrial corridor.
The mural features people of color looking toward the horizon, conveying a sense of hopefulness and vibrancy. The people depicted in the Grain Elevator mural either live in the NorthEnd or used to live in the NorthEnd and make up the foundation of the neighborhood. The artist GLeo, a female muralist from Colombia, painted the mural, which can be found near 21st & Broadway streets.
In addition to the large-scale mural, the project has commissioned approximately 20 other murals in the North End by various artists. Explore more of Wichita’s urban art scene with this guide.
