Imagineers Mural Restoration

Newton Murals has been working on the Imagineers mural for the last 22 months. Thank you Lyle Ledford, Tyler Murrow, Mark Otto, Carly Rowden, Theresa McGonigal, Susan Fox, Carole Lea Dugan, Connie Gauthier, Darren Schmitz, Melodie Tucker, Stephanie Arrellano Synder, Kacie Schmidt, Stephanie Walker, LukaBella Wiebe, Anna Dobie, Alexis Mata and others and to the Etc Shop, Walmart, Evergy, Sherwin Williams, and private donors for making this effort possible. We undertook this project at the urging of the community and because of Rodger Nugent's dedication and commitment to repairing the mural.


First steps are being taken to preserve Newton’s biggest mural “The Imagineers” so it can last through the winter. Lots of cracks have formed over the years which allow water in, causing the stucco behind the mural to fall off in thin layers. The paint chips show stucco on the back side, so this is just an unfortunate wall issue, not an issue with the paint.

We hope to get funding through different means from grants, and with community support for a major restoration that will keep it well sealed in the spring. 

The issue is to seal up cracks and adhere paint back to the wall that is in the process of coming off. Thanks to all who can help with this very colorful mural.
