Community-based murals can engage people to new ideas

Missouri Southern State University students help prepare Dave Loewenstein's exhibit, "At the End of the Day," which opened last week at Spiva Art Gallery on Southern's campus. The exhibit will be on display through Feb. 18. Loewenstein was responsible for Joplin's first community-based mural project, "The Butterfly Effect: Dreams Take Flight" at 15th and Main following the 2011 tornado. Courtesy|Marta Churchwell
