Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
For many years, Lawrence artists Lora Jost and Dave Loewenstein have been practitioners and lovers of murals. Both their expertise and their admiration come to play in this visual travelogue of Kansas murals. This 300-page paperback is the culmination of their Kansas Mural Project, which has identified more than 600 murals located throughout the Sunflower State. Kansas Murals pinpoints each of these sites with lists and regional maps. For armchair enthusiasts of art, though, the book's most captivating feature is its detailed illustrated exposition of 90 exemplary murals, including John Steaurt Curry's state capitol painting of a fiery-eyed John Brown.
