Jeffery Kinnie, a Parkview Hospital employee, is making a difference in the community one shift at a time. Kinnie completes his work day, clocks out and then finds out from nurses which patients haven’t had any visitors that day. He then takes time to check in with the patients and see how they are doing.

Kinnie is known as an “Everyday Star,” and a canvas was recently completed in his likeness for The Murosity Project, an initiative by Parkview Hospital. The project is a community-based art project reflecting generosity through the combination of a mosaic of images, that when placed together form a mural.

A total of 160 individual canvases make up the mural, which will be displayed in the emergency department of the new Parkview Regional Medical center in the fall.

A healing blanket, a food-stuffed backpack, a glowing lantern.

All of those images are part of an ongoing mural project, called “Murosity,” which will honor more than 160 people who have made a difference in the community as “Everyday Stars.”

The project is “a great exchange of energy and art,” says Vicki Junk-Wright, an art teacher at Canterbury High School, who is one of six local artists organizing the project.

The others are Santa Brink, Karen Moriarty, Teri Marquardt, Penny French-Deal and Terry Ratliff.

Mural to salute ‘everyday stars'

Parkview, artists unite in colorful tribute to local heroes

A project uniting local artists, high school students, celebrities, Parkview staff and everyday stars is under way.

The Parkview Foundation and artists Vicki Junk-Wright and Santa Brink developed the idea. The “Murosity” project, a combination of the words mural and generosity, is a large mural composed of 160 panels.

An initial painting was created, depicting the local area, then a grid was created over the picture to break it into 160 sections. Each section is made into a separate canvas. When all the sections are put together, they create the original painting.
