      Join us at Poplar Bluff Middle School to paint on the Bicentennial Mural!

      In commemoration of the Missouri Bicentennial, juried Best of Missouri Hands artists Aaron Horrell and Barb Bailey will assist thousands of Missourians across the state in painting a large composite aluminum panel mural featuring Missouri state symbols, including but not limited to the State Capitol building, State flag, and St. Louis Gateway Arch. Horrell and Bailey will travel panel pieces across Missouri in 2020 and 2021, providing as many people as possible – of any age or any ability – the chance to participate in painting the mural. The goal is for the final painting to have a permanent home in a state office building in Jefferson City, where it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
