SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - A large mural of Lane County author Ken Kesey, best known for his novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” will soon be painted in downtown Springfield.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/1JVLVvA ) the two-story mural will be painted on the east side of the Odd Fellows Building, which houses the Plank Town Brewing Co. Painting will start Aug. 23.

The Kesey family and city representatives weighed in on the final design, which will feature a central photo-realistic image of Kesey and smaller images that relate to him.

The $28,000 project will be painted by Old City Artists of Los Angeles.

Kesey’s image will accompany a mural featuring the Simpsons family one block away.

Kesey moved to Springfield in 1946 and later lived in Pleasant Hill. He died in 2001.
