A public art project is being planned for near Rockport.
New welcome centers are being built through out the state of Missouri, with funding coming from the local and federal government. The state Department of Transportation needs an artist for the new Rockport welcome center on Interstate 29. About $25,000 will go toward a mural on the inside wall of the welcome center that is 15 feet high and 44 feet long. Missouri Department of Transportation Elaine Justus says one goal of the new artwork is education.
