The Wichita Falls Chamber unveiled its mural on June 22nd in the lobby of its new location in the Hamilton Building on the corner of 8th & Lamar. Artist Aaron Campbell showcased her vision after months of hard work to the excitement of all in attendance.
“I am so proud to finally reveal my first solo mural to the city. It’s been such a great opportunity to grow and learn from. I’m grateful to the Wichita Falls Chamber for agreeing to work with me and giving me this project. They have been so supportive of me and I am excited to be a part of their expansion. I could not have done it without the partnership of the Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture as well. They are such a boon to the young artists of Wichita Falls. I hope that everyone who sees this mural will see the benefit the arts bring to our community and how important it is to the artists that are given the support they need to thrive. Please continue to support local businesses and stop by the Chamber to see my work.”
Aaron Campbell, Artist/Muralist
Hidden gems inside the mural make it a treat to peruse.
The mural features the iconic falls and contains tiny gems you’ll have to look closely to find. The Chamber is proud to add this mural for the community to enjoy.
“We knew that we wanted the entrance to the new Chamber to be special, something that would make locals proud and visitors say “wow”. That’s what we’ve accomplished with this new facility and the mural. It’s truly an amazing work of art, and the fact that a local artist painted it makes it all the more special.”
Henry Florsheim, Wichita Falls Chamber CEO

“Artists have a way of capturing our imaginations in a way that allows us to create our own stories. Aaron Campbell’s masterful work is full of stories and I’m proud to see this new addition join the roster of brilliant murals in our community.”
Margie Reese, Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture Executive Director
The Chamber will participate in future After Hours Artwalk events by staying open later to allow visitors to view the mural. In the meantime, the community is welcome to visit the Chamber lobby during business hours Monday-Friday.
