Power and Light District mural

The nine block Power and Light District in Kansas City was opened in 2008 and has given a significant impetus to the revitalization of downtown Kansas City, Missouri. In 2007, Alexander Austin received a commission to paint a mural covering 18,000 square feet, transforming a two block stretch of blank wall into a panorama in Kansas City’s Power & Light District. This mural, which depicts aspects of Kansas City Jazz history is located on the south sides of the buildings between Main and Walnut which run North/ South, and Truman road and 14th street which run East/ West. If you scroll and look East, you can see an additional mural (Satchel Paige) on the Two Light Building. If you scroll and look West, you can see the iconic Power and Light Building, from which the district gets its name.
