I wanted to bring a parting present so she and her family could look back at their time in KC with fondness and thought a print from local artist Mike Savage was the perfect gift.
Mike is a life-long Kansas City resident and while he paints lots (and lots!) of other things, it's his images of his hometown that resonate with me. This image captures all of Kansas City's Icons - the J.C. Nichols Fountain, Shuttlecocks at the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the Bartle Hall Pylons and more. I love how colorful it is and how it captures all of the amazing things about Kansas City in one beautiful print.
Some of my other favorite images...
|Bending Towards Kansas City|
|Crossing Brush Creek|
|Brush Creeking By|
|MU - The Columns|
Couldn't resist that MU print...lifelong Mizzou fan! Great graduation present, right?
Mike's art can be purchased online or in person at his Gallery. Do you think this makes a good "going-away" gift?
