Tribute wall for Jesus Reyes

Northeast News

Northeast teen Jesus Reyes was murdered last month. Some may have known him as SCREW, but he was more commonly known to his peers as REZR. Over the weekend of April 27-29, Kansas City area artists who knew Reyes painted a wall in tribute to their young friend in an alley east of Hardesty Ave, just north of St. John Ave. The artists were given permission to paint this wall, and a follow-up event has been planned to repaint this space again on the weekend of June 1-3, when graffiti artists from around the nation are in Kansas City for the Master Piece Art Show at 3114 Holmes.
