Title: End Gun Violence Together
Artist: Daniel Gulick and Anthony Carrera
Location: Columbia Traders Building (420 S Main St)
Date Completed: December 10, 2018
Description: When Jeff and Carolina Neal of Neal Group Construction & Restoration began restoring the Columbia Traders building in downtown Joplin, they wanted the building to have a positive impact on the community. In 2018, the popular shoe manufacturer TOMS came to town with a campaign aimed at ending gun violence, and the couple happily volunteered their building’s South facing wall as a canvas for the company’s message. Artists Daniel Gulick and Anthony Carrera were commissioned by TOMS to paint murals like this one in five states, each one promoting better background checks for those purchasing firearms.
