Missouri’s bicentennial is the focus of a giant mural that was dedicated earlier this week at the Harry S. Truman building in Jefferson City.

The mural contains 19 different state symbols and was the creation of artists Aaron Horrell and Barb Bailey from the Cape Girardeau area.

Over 16-thousand people from more than 350 towns across the state helped paint the mural which is 12-feet tall and 30-feet wide.

It can be viewed at the Truman building, Monday through Friday from 6:30a to 5:30p.
