ST. LOUIS, MO. - Verizon is spreading kindness in St. Louis’ Delmar Loop, thanks to a partnership with local artist Peat “EYEZ” Wollaeger. Located at 6301 Delmar Blvd., it’s all part of Verizon’s national #ACallForKindness campaign which aims to make the world a kinder place, one act at a time.

“I am known for my signature @EYEZ and use them to make a connection to the people who find them on the streets,” said Peat Wolleager, the artist who painted the mural. “I'm excited to be selected to represent Saint Louis for #ACallForKindness with my mural in the Delmar Loop! If you look closely in my eye there's actually a hidden smiley face that represents kindness. This mural is an Augmented Reality mural that animates when you scan it with the Artivive App and is my first AR mural in Saint Louis.”

You can learn more about the artist and see his other murals by visiting @Eyez on Instagram.

About the campaign

The #ACallForKindness campaign started in October 2020 with the goal of reminding everyone that we’re all in this together, and a little kindness goes a long way. Since then, we’ve shared a study on the state of kindness in America, and teamed up with two brothers walking across the country to raise money for restaurant workers and spread kindness.
