Campus as Canvas: Mizzou Launches Artist in Residence Program

News Type

The first of several large-scale murals has appeared on the Mizzou campus—a large-scale tiger in front of Jesse Hall—marking the official launch of Mizzou’s new Artist in Residence (AIR) program. Chancellor Alexander Cartwright proposed the program last year to bring established and emerging artists to MU to celebrate the arts and to cultivate creativity across disciplines. The AIR program is a campus-wide event, organized by the College of Arts and Science.
