JOPLIN, MO.--- Art Feeds unveils its "I Am Joplin" mural. The mural features 318 photos of more than 500 Joplin community members. In each picture, a person holds a sign saying "I Am" and then writes a word or saying that best describes them and their role in the community. Art Feeds Founder Meg Bourne-Hulsey says she's always wanted to create a portrait mural, but she had no idea what kind of response she would get from this project.
"I am just amazed at the outcome, it has turned out so much better than I could have ever expected. We messed around with a lot of different mediums and finally found that this white aluminum really made the photos look amazing," said Meg Bourne-Hulsey, Art Feeds Founder.
The mural is designed to travel. For now, it will sit at 6th and Main and will be there through the holidays. Bourne-Hulsey says she plans to look at other places around Joplin to put the art piece so more people can enjoy it.
