Don Sprague Murals
Several Locations throughout Coffeyville
Rich in color & accurate in history, the murals painted by the late Don Sprague transport you back in Coffeyville History. Between 1988 and 1992, Sprague painted 14 murals in and around downtown Coffeyville. Before he began painting Sprague spent hours doing research making sure each mural was historically accurate. The murals also contain Don’s son name “Tim” hidden in the painting. The dots after Sprague’s signature represent the number of times “Tim” appears in each mural. All but two murals have since been restored by Coffeyville Community College Art instructor Michael DeRosa.
Downtown Electric Box Art
Check out the electric boxes that are covered in paint by local artist. This was a project done by Downtown Coffeyville to help beautify the downtown area and bring some color! Some boxes include history of Coffeyville, some are to showcase businesses in Coffeyville, and some are just art to enjoy.
