Arts News: Saving a Kansas City Treasure - KC STUDIO

Talented, sometimes troubled and often ill, Arthur M. Kraft (1922 - 1977) forged a major art career in his native Kansas City, while exhibiting throughout the United States and Europe.

The mural doesn't fall under the "just polishing a turd when it's all said and done" category. It is a nice piece of work.
Question is will it be worth all the time and money? I mean what if the value of the mural is only $17,000. Not the right thing to do if that's the case money wise.
