Murals are more than just decorative outdoor projects. Two local muralists and the co-director of Called to Walls, a new documentary about community-based art in the Midwest (screening tonight at KU) discuss the process of creating a piece of public art that can reflect the past, present and aspirational future of a community.

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
