Some galleries change for Third Thursday art walk

JOPLIN, Mo. — Though downtown traffic has been crazy, art walkers won’t have to worry next week.

Main Street will be closed for June’s Discover Downtown Third Thursday event, which includes an art walk, live music, extended restaurant hours and more.
