mural-bucherMSSU Art Professor Burt Bucher heads up the team of art students delegated to paint a 115 ft. long by 15 ft. high mural located on the corner of MainĀ and A Streets in Joplin.

The project began the night of Thursday, June 27.

Painting has to be done in at night so the image of the mural can be projected onto the large white canvas.

The mural is expected to be completed before the fall semester starts.
