Entire Bicentennial Mural on Display for the first time July 4
The Bicentennial Mural is finally complete and all 15 panels will be shown together for the first time at the A.C. Brase Arena in Cape Girardeau during their Fourth of July festival on Sunday, July 4. The mural unofficially broke the Guinness World Records for the number of people who painted on it for a total of 16,116 painters!
Congratulations to artists Aaron Horrell and Barb Bailey of Cape Girardeau who envisioned this project several years ago and saw it through to completion. Panels of the mural traveled across the state with Horrell and Bailey who invited people of all ages, regardless of skill, to paint a small triangle that was outined by the artists and part of the overall design that includes Missouri state symbols.
The mural will be on permanent display at the Truman State Office Building in Jefferson City after the bicentennial year.
