"Ken Kesey" Mural
Address:4th & Main St (Odd Fellows Building)
Springfield OR 97477
This two-story mural on the east stucco wall of the Odd Fellows Building (currently home to Plank Town Brewing Company) commemorates author and "Merry Prankster" Ken Kesey. Kesey was a Springfield High School graduate. He is known for writing "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest" and "Sometimes a Great Notion." Designed by Craig Ferroggiaro of Portland and painted by the Old City Artists of Los Angeles. A panel consisting of city representatives and the Kesey family selected the final mural design. It took months of planning and cost $28,000. The mural was finished and dedicated August 2015.
