Graffiti will soon be donning the side of buildings in and around Abilene this month.
Some will happen overnight as the inspiration to paint often occurs in the wee hours of the morning.
But don’t look for building owners to quickly whitewash the designs.
Renowned Kansas City graffiti artist Whitney Kerr III is behind the art.
The artist responsible for the “Greetings from Kansas City” and “Kansas City’s Superman” graffiti murals has already completed two at the Cedar House greenhouse in rural Abilene.
Plans are for three more in Abilene, with a similar greetings mural to be painted on the Reflector-Chronicle building overlooking Little Ike Park. He also plans on a mural at Abilene Printing and Last Chance Graphics.
Kerr gets his inspirations for the murals through photographs. The Cedar House mural came from pictures taken by Lyndsey Buechman through 4-H. Kerr took many photographs throughout Abilene last week for inspirations for his designs.
