Downtown Shawnee mural getting fresh look courtesy of Rotary Club

The new mural design in Shawnee features several Kansas symbols.

The Rotary Club of Shawnee commissioned artist Jacob Cromer to paint the new mural on the side of the building at Johnson Drive and Nieman Road.

If you’ve been in downtown Shawnee lately, you may have noticed a gradual change just east of the corner of Johnson Drive and Nieman Road.

Gone is the “quilt square” mural that has long been a landmark on the side of a building that houses Pegah’s Family Restaurant and several other businesses. In its place, a new mural is beginning to come into focus, courtesy of the Rotary Club of Shawnee.
