JRM Arts owner, Jim Mutrux, has a life long awareness of craftsmanship and aesthetics. Pursuing these passions led him to the Kansas City Art Institute and then to choose a career as a contractor, specializing in the restoration of old buildings. Jim finds it tragic that so many of our nation's historic buildings are allowed to fall into ruin and be torn down.
In particular, he laments the demise of the bas relief ornamentation that gives these buildings their character, charm and style. These irreplaceable works were created in a era of great optimism by old world trained artisans who emigrated to America. With their centuries' old craftsmanship all but gone, Jim perfected a method to preserve and reproduce these beautiful works, insuring the survival of our great cities' heritage. Now these gems of building art can be used by you in creative new ways that add grace and charm to interior and exterior spaces, complimenting the modern with the historic.
