The Art of (Signs)

Get lost* in our new photography series, “The Art of (KC)”, where we bring you beautiful, thought-provoking and compelling images of our city and surrounding areas every other week.

On Friday, the iconic Western Auto sign at 21st Street and Grand Boulevard was re-lit, thanks to funding from the Western Auto Lofts homeowners’ association. In light of this illumination (ha!) we’re highlighting (haha!) other signs around town. We invite you to get out your phone, your camera, your sketchbook — whatever — and let us see your POV. Follow us @FlatlandKC and share your interpretations with #ArtofKC.

*We’ve captioned the photos with general addresses so you won’t actually get lost.
