Muralist Brings Work Indoors for Exhibition

Mural artist Alexander Austin has made his mark on the outside of buildings across Kansas City. There's a tribute to performer Michael Jackson at 18th and Troost; larger than life musicians and baseball players in Kansas City's history in the Power & Light district; and a memorial to civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. at Linwood and Troost.


Kansas City, MO – KCUR's Laura Spencer caught up with the artist to talk about his work, and his first solo exhibition.
