Eye cough submitted this Artist Statement for his mural, "The Wave":

There is an African proverb that goes, “Smooth waters do not make skillful sailors.” When a community is faced with a challenge, it is given an opportunity to grow.  This community has certainly been tested this year, but like the lotus flower that rises from the bottom of the pond and reaches out of the water toward the sun, North Kansas City still blooms.   

It used to be very difficult to cross the Missouri River, until people came together and built a bridge, which allowed for even more connection.  

The past several months have been turbulent, but this city has ridden the waves of change and is becoming more adaptive and responsive to every new obstacle.  I feel as if the whole world is being forced to connect and understand each other in entirely new ways.  

I designed this mural to celebrate community, inspire hope, and to encourage the continued growth and transformation of consciousness in our town.
