Help Us Raise Money for New Murals Coming to Town

We are very excited to announce that our Chamber will be collaborating with other local businesses to bring four new murals to Iola. The murals will appear over the next 12-18 months, with the first one going on the east outside wall of our current Chamber building. The mural on the Chamber building will depict the Fearless Fred trolley and span about 7 feet x 12 feet. Work on the mural will start in July by local designer and mural artist, Max Grundy

Additional murals will begin to appear on the buildings of Audacious Boutique, Derryberry Breadery and the Allen County Historical Society over the next year-and-a-half. For more information about the murals, stop by our Chamber at 10 W Jackson Ave in Iola. Or contact us at or 620.365.5252.

Bring the Murals to Town

If you’re excited about the idea of bringing additional artwork to Iola, the perfect opportunity is coming up for you to help support it. To help raise funds to complete the four downtown murals, our Chamber is asking for donations for a silent auction to be held in August. We also invite you to shop the silent auction when it opens. All proceeds from the silent auction will help pay for paint supplies and the artists’ time. 

The silent auction will be open to all businesses as well as the general public, and we are accepting donations from both businesses and individuals. Donations can be brought to the Chamber office at 10 W Jackson Ave in Iola. Make sure to check our emails and Facebook page as we get closer to August for further details about specific dates and times of the auction. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by our office or contact us at or 620.365.5252.

What Will Be Available for Purchase?

We want to thank all of the generous businesses and individuals who have donated to our silent auction. Make sure to check out the donor businesses, as well as the kind of items that will be available from them.
