Missouri’s anniversary of 200 years of rich history coincides with two other anniversaries: the incorporation of Blue Springs, Missouri in 1881, and the anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail, which passed through the town from 1821-1825. Our project will incorporate public art awareness and its impact on the community with accessible activities for all ages. Our project will reach out to all creating active engagements to show how art and history are connected. We are hoping to create enthusiasm for both. Both have stood the test of time. The history of Missouri statehood opened up more access to the west part of the state, like our town of Blue Springs. The project will show and contrast life now and in the 1820s. There is a rich history in this town and we hope to have the community open its new eyes to our future!! We want to emphasize our history to mark the importance of our celebration!
