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 dedication and unveiling of the Missouri Bicentennial Artwork will take place at 2 p.m., Thursday, December 9, 2021 at Vesper Hall, 400 NW Vesper Street, Blue Springs Missouri.
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, Blue Springs Daughters of the American Revolution and the Lawrence Randall Family assisted in creating the art piece.
This project is supported in part by a Ghost Light Program award from the Missouri Arts Council, in partnership with the Missouri Asscoiation of Community Arts Agencies.
All are welcome to attend this joyous celebration of Public Art in Blue Springs and the Bicentennial of the great State of Missouri.
