Artistic mural representation of diverse women in Kansas

Wak’ó Mujeres Phụ nữ Women Mural

The vividly colored “Wak’ó Mujeres Phụ nữ Women Mural” spans much of the library’s lower south wall and celebrates women of color past and present who made noteworthy contributions to the area’s history and culture. The women depicted on the mural were chosen through a nomination process. Early Friday evening, Lawrence resident Addie Mehl was working on a portrait of her grandmother, the late Tomiko Mehl, who, unbeknownst to Addie Mehl, was nominated by others to be included in the mural. “She was a Japanese war bride who came over during the Korean War,” Mehl said of her grandmother. Tomiko Mehl ended up spending more than 30 years in Lawrence and had three sons who went to the University of Kansas.
