Joplin Arts District to add new mural


JOPLIN, Mo. — The Joplin Arts District is looking to showcase graffiti art downtown.

The location is the south wall of the Smith’s Floor store in the 800-block of Main Street. The theme will showcase diversity in Joplin. Artists will be paid for their work – and would also get the chance to showcase their work for a wide audience.

Linda Teeter, Joplin Arts District Coordinator, said, “I have really been a spokesperson — in a positive way — about our graffiti artists for many, many years and we’ve never been able to engage them in a project off Main Street where they could be showcased and I’d like to showcase the best of our graffiti artists.”

The Arts District also has a Welcome To Joplin Mural located at B and Main that was painted in November. If you’d like more information, or would like to be a part of this project – visit the district’s Facebook.
