Celebrating Missouri Through Mosaic Art
In recognition of twenty years of public art programming in the City of Blue Springs and to celebrate the Missouri Bicentennial, the City of Blue Springs has partnered with three organizations to create a large mosaic artwork featuring two state symbols, the Missouri Bluebird on a Dogwood Tree branch. The design for the mosaic artwork was created by Lawrence Randall, retired Blue Springs art teacher and member of the Blue Springs Public Art Commission. Members of the Blue Springs Public Art Commission, Blue Springs Art League, and Blue Springs Daughters of the American Revolution will assist in creating the art piece. Upon completion, the mosaic will be hung for public viewing in Vesper Hall Senior Center with a dedication to celebrate 20 years of public art in Blue Springs, Missouri Bicentennial and our state’s history.
