KANSAS PROUD: Artist wants to paint mural on Hays water tower

HAYS, Kan. (KWCH) A Kansas artist wants to paint a large mural on the Sternberg water tower in Hays.

The mural would cover an estimated 170-feet around the tower. The proposed mural is similar to a current painting on a building in downtown hays.

Eyewitness News talked with the artist who says he hopes the mural will help make Hays a more attractive destination spot.

"Every car that goes by on I-70 will see it so it'll open the eyes for a lot of people that don't know whats in Hays," says Dennis Schiel.

The proposed mural will be discussed at the city commission meeting tomorrow.

If approved, it will cost more than $200,000 and would take more than a year to complete.
