RM West street art

This is a big week for Street Art in Kansas City … we are about to get a lot more colorful, as dozens of artists are set to add more than 40 new murals to our city starting Sunday. The third annual SpraySeeMO mural festival bills itself as the “largest ever” painting exhibition, where the public can watch artists coat the walls of downtown buildings with creative imagery in real time.

This multi panel example of street art is located on the North and West sides of the RM West apartment complex on 3rd and Broadway in the River Market district in Kansas City, MO.

Town of Kansas mural

This mural is on the West side of the Mid-America Merchandising building at 3rd and Wyandotte (early home of the Miller-Cooper Ink Co.), a little off the beaten path in the River Market district in KCMO. The mural was commissioned in 2000 and painted by Alisha Gambino, Joe Faus and Jesus Ortiz… the same artists who painted the Lewis and Clark mural at 5th and Wyandotte!

The mural depicts a river scene at the Town of Kansas which was incorporated in 1850. The state of Missouri then incorporated the area as the City of Kansas in 1853 and renamed it Kansas City in 1889. This scene also shows the Steamboat Arabia, which sunk in the Missouri River in 1856, and was uncovered in 1988. The artifacts are housed in the Arabia Steamboat Museum in the River Market district of KCMO.

Townley Metal and Hardware Co ghost sign

The Townley Metal and Hardware Company building, located at 200 Walnut in the River Market District in KCMO, was erected in three separate campaigns beginning in 1895. The Townley family successfully operated in the building until 1982 when the business was sold. This building was added to the historic registry in 1994 and was converted to luxury lofts (Old Townley Lofts) in 2013.

This historic structure is magnificent … as are its ghost signs… and it has MANY! There are several (five) on the North side, one on the West side visible from the small courtyard between the Townley building and the old KC Water Department building, and one on the South visible above the parking garage.

Below is a 360° “tour” (four separate 360° pictures) of these ghost signs and area… clicking on the arrows allows you to move left and right. Use your mouse to look up, look down, look all around… and zoom in or out.
