Vivid Dreams, located at the Belmont (3555 E Douglas Ave, Wichita, KS) is a mural collaboration with Tina Nguyen, artist in Wichita. Vivid Dreams was created during Avenue Art Days, a 3-day weekend during which murals are painted across the Douglas Design District in Wichita.
In 2019, Wichita State University held an open call for applications to paint the Clinton Hall Stairs. Titled “Dreams and Wishes”, the work symbolizes WSU as the hub of dream- and wish-making. The work gives homage to the WuShock, the university’s mascot, with grains of wheat dancing in the background. Sarah directed and managed 20+ volunteers to paint the entire mural over the course of 3 weeks.
During the summer of 2020, Together Wichita sponsored “Keepers on Parade” to celebrate Wichita’s 150th Birthday. Together Wichita chose 13 artists from a pool of over 60 applicants, of which Sarah’s mom (Chiyoko Myose) and her were a part of. They were chosen to paint Wichita’s District #3 Keeper, located at Clapp Park. Chiyoko and Sarah consulted with the district to plan and paint the ten-foot-tall Keeper of the Plains replica.
