As the countdown to Super Bowl LVII begins, Kansas City Chiefs fans everywhere are showing their love for their team in creative and colorful ways. One such fan is Riverside artist Jeff Parson, who recently created a larger-than-life structure to demonstrate his admiration for the Chiefs. Standing tall off Northwest Gateway Avenue, Jeff’s creation features an 11-foot figure of Patrick Mahomes and a 6-foot figure of Travis Kelce, amongst other impressive pieces of artwork.
For Jeff, painting the structure has become a tradition over the past five years. He loves seeing the joy the artwork brings to other fans, and he hopes that it will spread the goodwill and positivity that Chiefs Kingdom has to offer. Annie and Peter Spiehs, two Kansas Citians, recently visited the display and were amazed by Jeff’s talent. Annie said that the artwork perfectly encapsulated what the city is all about right now.
With just a few days left until the big game, Jeff’s artwork is only expected to get bigger. He plans to add an even bigger Lombardi Trophy to the display, which will take a few extra days to build. Before the game, Jeff has a final message for the Chiefs: “I want you to enjoy this moment and I want you to enjoy this team. Feel free to stop by and enjoy it.”
Jeff Parson’s artwork is a wonderful reminder of the power of Chiefs Kingdom and the strength of the Kansas City community. It’s a beautiful way to show support for the team and a great way to get in the spirit of the Super Bowl.
