Missouri Wall of Fame Mural Interpretation Boards Installed in Downtown Cape

Samantha Mlot, Communication & Marketing Specialist

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO- Old Town Cape, Inc. On Thursday, March 22, 2018 the new Mural Interpretation Boards were installed along the Missouri Wall of Fame in downtown Cape Girardeau.  Old Town Cape, Inc. received a grant from the Missouri Humanities Council (MHC) to help fund the redesign and reprinting of the Interpretation Boards, and partnered with VisitCape to complete the project.

The Missouri Wall of Fame Mural features nearly 50 individuals who were born in Missouri or achieved fame while living in the state. The mural was originally designed in 1995 by local artist Margaret Randol Dement, and was restored in 2006 by Chicago artists Thomas Melvin, Cameron Pfiffner and Marian Voinea, along with local artists Craig Thomas and Scott Kelley. In 2017, the image of General Seth Mckee was added to the mural by local artist Craig Thomas. 

The Missouri Wall of Fame is an iconic art installment in the Cape Girardeau area. Tourism is a major economic driver for downtown Cape Girardeau which made this project a natural partnership with VisitCape.

Old Town Cape, Inc. is a community driven, not-for-profit organization that utilizes the Four-Point Main Street Approach™ to preserve, promote, revitalize, and enrich the historic, cultural, and economic landscapes of downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
