Since 2016, Envision has been sharing its mission with the guests of the Aloft Wichita, which has exhibited over 60 pieces of rotating artwork from the Envision Arts Gallery at any given time inside the hotel. Now, Envision's mission is more visible to all guests with a new outdoor mural at the Aloft. 

Susayn Brandes, CEO and Chairman of Great Plains Ventures (GPV), which owns the Aloft Wichita and her brother, Marque Peer, Vice President of Real Estate and Development for GPV, have both been long time supporters of Envision Arts Gallery's mission. They have been sponsors for annual Golf Fore Vision Tournaments, Evening with Envision Galas and the Envision Arts Program. 

“When Brandes approached us about her desire to have a mural painted outside the Aloft, she had been inspired by the mural tour that she had recently shared with her girlfriends in Nashville, Tennessee,” said Sarah Kephart, Senior Manager, Envision Arts. “Once we gathered with the Aloft team to discuss what images we would like to see inside the wings, it became evident that this was going to honor our great state of Kansas as well as being a celebration of the history and current vibrancy of Wichita.” 

The Envision Arts team dove into the design process soon after, and Brandes fell in love with their creation immediately. Brandes shared, “It is such an amazing addition to our art collection at the Aloft. It is, indeed, the capstone.”
