Marlborough neighbor and Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) Professor Julie Farstad initiated "Flowers For Marlborough" as a community art project and visual love letter to her neighborhood by painting native plants and pollinators on blighted structures.  Julie's first collaborative painting, installed at 1339 E 79 St. and with the permission of the property owner, was done with Marlborough artists Anna Goodwin and Adam Crowley and in partnership with the Coalition's Arts and Culture Task Force. 
Julie organized the panel designs with each artist adding their interpretation of the native flowers in two panels. Julie's two panels are at the center of the mural, Adam's to the left, and Anna's to the right.  Follow Flowers For Marlborough or the Marlborough Coalition on Facebook or @FlowersForMarlborough on Instagram for information on the next painting. Ideas being considered include an inside-out art museum and native plant paintings on streets to slow traffic. Supplies for this project were funded by the Rosser Biennial Faculty Fellowship at KCAI.
