Hoisington Main Street Murals
201 N Main St, Hoisington, KS 67544
Three murals grace the Wilson State Bank building on Main Street of Hoisington. Facing Main Street, “Morning Reflection” showcases nearby Cheyenne Bottoms. On the south side of the bank building facing 2nd Street, “Over the Kansas Rainbow” depicts an oil drilling rig in a typical Barton County oilfield scene. “Helping Hands during Harvest”also faces 2nd Street. This mural was painted from a photo taken as wheat harvest was completed by family and friends of Ed Stoss after his death. Mr. Stoss was a Hoisington farmer who also drove a school bus for many years.
Olivia Lowry, a graduate of Hoisington High School, created all three murals in 2015 while she was a student at Fort Hays State University. Ms. Lowery is currently an art director in Chicago.
