The span of central Wichita known as the Douglas Design District is planning for major changes in the next few years.

The district, established 10 years ago, stretches from Washington to Oliver, and from Second Street down to Kellogg.

“Our membership in the last couple of years has taken a dramatic upswing," says district president Janelle King. "We project there [are] about 300 local businesses along the district.”

A group of artists and volunteers will be painting new colorful murals in Wichita’s Douglas Design District this weekend--if the weather cooperates.

Sixteen murals are planned for buildings along East Douglas Avenue. An artist collective known as Brickmob will paint a 20-foot mural featuring a brain over a corner of the Alzheimer’s Association building.
