Professional and amateur artists of all ages are commemorating 200 years of Missouri statehood with creative expression. Join us for a live presentation on collaborative projects across the state, including Missouri Art Now, a traveling exhibition featuring works of 60 Missouri artists; the Missouri Bicentennial Mural, which invites Missourians of any age or ability to paint on a 30-foot canvas; and the Missouri Remembers project, a free, online resource documenting artists who lived in or spent part of their career within Missouri. We’ll also share information on the finalist drawings of the Bicentennial Poster contest that are being shaped into the official poster by Hallmark Creative Marketing Studio. And, more!
We'll be joined by Amelia Nelson, head of Library and Archives at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City; John Knuteson with the Missouri Remembers Project at the St. Louis Public Library; Jill Sullivan, executive director of Post Art Library in Joplin; and Barb Bailey and Aaron Horrell, artists and Missouri Bicentennial mural architects from Painted Wren Art Gallery in Cape Girardeau. Online and free, registration required.
