LUCAS, Kan. (AP) — Porcelain artist Eric Abraham, who was known for his community arts activism in the northwest Kansas town of Lucas, has died at age 76.

The Cremation Center of Kansas City said funeral arrangements are pending for Abraham, who died Saturday.

The Hays Daily News (http://bit.ly/18MUmDY ) reported Abraham was a key player in many artistic ventures in Lucas.

He was one of the first to suggest the community needed a public restroom given its goal to bring people to the town. Abraham created the swirling water porcelain artwork that welcomes visitors to Lucas.

He moved from eastern Kansas to Lucas in 2004 and converted a former auto dealership building into a studio and gallery.
