October launch of Bicentennial campaign

Put on your thinking cap and get ready to do your part toward making art to celebrate Columbia’s bicentennial.

In October, the city’s bicentennial task force is going to launch a “One Word Project.” It will involve asking city residents to describe the Columbia in one word and those words will be put together to decorate a 12-foot sphere that will be created and placed at Providence and Broadway in 2021 to mark Columbia’s 200th birthday.

The sphere is to be funded through private donations, according to this Aug. 22, 2019, Columbia Missourian article, “Art project to celebrate Columbia’s bicentennial.”
