Facebook: Save the Pollinators mural

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

Lawrence city commissioners say there's no feasible way to avoid demolishing a wall bearing a mural that some want to save.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the 2007 mural called "Pollinators" is part of a 2007 exhibition sponsored by the Spencer Museum of Art that honors seven black artists with Kansas ties. The mural is on the wall of a building at a site where a development group wants to build a new apartment building.

A museum official told commissioners she would prefer to keep the existing wall and mural in place during the construction. But the developer says that's not feasible.

The commissioners said Tuesday they agreed with the developer's assessment, but urged the development group to talk to experts about how the work could be moved or reproduced.
