3D Street Painting is Coming to Joplin

Visit Joplin has partnered with the World Street Painting Foundation of the Netherlands to create a one-of-a-kind celebration of the Route 66 Centennial.

Over the next three years, 28 international and five U.S. artists will create what will become the world’s largest collection of 3D Street Paintings — thirty-three paintings in all.

It all begins on June 5, when three artists will introduce their craft to Joplin, right along Route 66, on the grounds of the Harry M. Cornell Arts and Entertainment Complex.

The artists will create their 3D art on June 5, 6, and 7, and the public is invited to experience the completed art in the third dimension on Saturday, June 8. In fact, the public is encouraged to visit the artists daily to see how a 3D image is created and brought to life.

Appreciation goes out to the Cornell Complex, Connect2Culture, and Spiva Center for the Arts, whose support helps bring this celebration to the regional Route 66 community.

It all begins June 5, the World Street Painting Festival — 3 Years and 33 3D Paintings — honoring 100 years of the Mother Road.
