A Kansas City Art Institute student is taking a new approach to bring people together.
Nick Decrafft is inviting people to write or draw positive messages on red, white and blue paper. Once all the messages are collected, he will put them together to make an American flag.
“There’s a lot of division. There’s a lot of unrest and I feel like it’s really important that we remember what’s great about this country and how we can still be connected, even in the most trying of time,” Decrafft said.
He is collecting positive messages during lunch hours at Gilliam Park November 21 and 22.
