McPherson Mural Collection

Downtown McPherson is the site of a mural collection funded by the McPherson Convention & Visitors Bureau. Each mural depicts a historical feature unique to the community and can be viewed during a self-guided walking or driving tour. The first McPherson mural was unveiled in November 2010 followed by others through 2016.

Five of the six murals depicting McPherson attractions and historical events were created by Naomi Ullum. She developed her skills by taking a variety of classes from master artists and becoming a member of the Society of Decorative Painters. While teaching art classes at Central Christian College, she employed students to help design and produce the McPherson murals. Ullum also helped restore the original G.N. Malm mural over the McPherson Opera House stage and created the La Brea tar pit mural at the McPherson Museum.

The Maxwell Wildlife Refuge Mural was created by McPherson artist Matthew Richter who has immersed himself in depicting the flora and fauna of the Midwest prairie landscape.
