Corridor Gallery Research Center-Columbia
The Research Center–Columbia is currently exhibiting Boone County History through the Eyes of Student Artists: A Collaboration with Lee Expressive Arts Elementary School. Preparatory studies for a ceramic relief mural representing the natural and cultural history of central Missouri will be on display in SHS's Corridor Gallery until April 25, 2015. Drawings created by fifth graders at Lee Expressive Arts Elementary School in Columbia are supplemented with student writings and photographs that reflect the process by which they researched the topic and created the mural. The mural will be permanently installed at the Columbia Art League in 2015. The project is a collaboration between Lee Expressive Arts Elementary School, the Columbia Art League, the City of Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs, and the State Historical Society of Missouri.
