Bicentennial Mural Permanently Installed in Jefferson City

The MO Bicentennial Mural was permanently installed on the wall overlooking the cafeteria inside the Truman Building in Jefferson City. The dedication/reveal took place on June 23, 2022. 

From the mural’s inception in June 2018 to its completion in June 2021, this project was a huge undertaking. Best of MO Hands artists Barb Bailey and Aaron Horrell directed 16,116 people to each paint a triangle. They traveled around Missouri or people stopped by their Cape Girardeau art gallery to add their brush strokes to this mural. 

The idea for the mural originated from Painted Wren Art Gallery in Cape Girardeau.
