Missouri Art Now

Sponsored by Joplin Visitors and Convention Bureau, Post Art Library & Missouri Arts Council

Conceived by Jill Hallbach-Sullivan of the Post Art Library in partnership with Spiva Center for the Arts, Missouri Art Now is a celebration of Missouri’s bicentennial by bringing together artists from all over the state. The call-for-entry based competition was juried by institutions from the four corners of Missouri to shed a spotlight on exemplary artists chosen for the distinguished honor of representing our vibrant arts culture. This exhibition consists of 60 diverse works by 60 artists whose artistry stood out among hundreds of others. The collection, as a whole, is on tour and is making its way through five Missouri-based venues. Spiva is excited to be hosting this exhibition in its third out of five stops on the tour.
