Kansas City public art project takes on debt
7-stories high and next to the KC Federal Reserve, artwork takes on national debt, more
By The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) ' A temporary art structure in Kansas City, Mo., made up of dozens of large steel shipping containers is creating a buzz with its message about the national debt.

The containers face the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and spell out "IOU." The other side of the nearly seven-story structure spells out "USA."

The artist is John Salvest, of Jonesboro, Ark. He says he was inspired by the national debt problem but believes the message is open to the viewer's interpretation. The piece went up earlier this month and will be taken down in mid-October.

The art installation has been privately funded by Grand Arts, a Kansas-City based nonprofit gallery. The group isn't saying how much it cost, but a spokeswoman says it's one of the group's biggest projects.
