The project is called the Kendall-Whittier Walls Public Art Program, and it’s designed to create some civic pride through public art. It’s a collaboration between the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation and Kendall-Whittier Main Street.
Thirty-four artists submitted proposals, and four were selected to paint murals on five walls in the neighborhood.
Here are the locations and the artists who will paint them:
John Hammer of Claremore was working on the Ziegler wall when we stopped by to watch. This is only his second mural and the first using spray paint.
"I thought this one would be a good challenge to try something new," he said.
The artists have until the end of the month to finish, and the public is encouraged to stop by and watch the work.
