WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A new work of public art has joined the Wichita skyline.

The Wichita Eagle (http://is.gd/ZH2U8P ) reports that runners created a unique billboard last month during a 5-kilometer run sponsored by Ballet Wichita. After crossing the finish line, runners walked across a 35 by 14 feet canvas with their feet slathered in paint.

Ballet Wichita's executive director, Barbara Yarnell Chamberlin, says about 220 participants loaned their colorful footprints to the project.

The billboard was unveiled last week.

Chamberlin says next year's race will feature three to four different public art projects. She hopes the event draws more of Wichita's young professionals into the arts scene.
