New Gordon Parks Museum Billboard
A grant from the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation helped support the replacement of the Gordon Parks Museum billboard on North U.S. Highway 69 on the town’s outskirts.
The billboard, which sustained extensive wind damage last spring and summer, is completely different than the previous version with less text and more “eye-catching” graphics, said Kirk Sharp, the museum’s executive director.
“The new billboard is a great attraction for visitors not only for the museum but also creates great attention and welcome to the community,” he said.
“We are very thankful to be part of this grant,” Sharp said. “This grant allows us to not only replace and install the billboard, but to enhance it and make it easier to see and read while drivers are traveling and coming into town.”
“We would also like to thank CDL Electric for help with the artwork and installation and replacement of the new billboard.”
