Now, the art department of Missouri Southern State University wants to see more of them indoors. A wall-sized mural was dedicated today on the third floor of the MSSU Spiva Library.
Assistant Art Professor Kyle McKenzie says the piece is the result of hundreds of work hours put in by students in his mural class.
"A lot more sort of nuance than a lot of murals," McKenzie explained. "It's not only designed and painted in a way that looks great from across the room, but because it's in an indoor space and people are sort of sitting nearby, it also looks great up close."
There is another three-part mural in a nearby stairway that was also painted by his class
