The Phantom Art Gallery's initial installation spanned an entire city block, running half a block in two directions. It was an immediate smash hit, rating a front page story in the local paper. Installed in time for Wichita's River Festival, the installation graced an area that was in the center of the Festival's biggest party. Artist's work represented in this documented display include an oil by Joan Danneburg of Kansas City (left), two abstractions by Chris Poelma of Wichita, and a large representational oil based on cigarette ads by Mark Zimmermann of Neptune, New Jersey (right).
