Title: Together We Create
Artist: Art Feeds
Location: Mercy Park (26th St and Maiden Lane)
Date Completed: May 2018
Description: A new mural was installed in Joplin’s Mercy Park in May of 2018, thanks to Art Feeds, Mercy Hospital, the City of Joplin, and Connect2Culture. The mural, titled “Together We Create,” was created during two weekend workshops hosted on-site by Art Feeds. More than 50 participating children brainstormed, drew, and painted while learning to cooperate with each other to create something where everyone’s contribution shines. The children’s designs were then compiled into one cohesive mural, which was placed on the back of Mercy Park’s existing butterfly mural. Meg Bourne, Art Feeds founder and CEO, said the project was a great opportunity for students to learn how to harness their creativity and use it to improve their community.
