Missouri Downtown Murals Raise Awareness Bring Attention to COVID-19 and Public Art
Artwork inspired by COVID-19 is bringing some added color—and conversation—to St. Louis neighborhoods. “As I was painting, a lot of people were stopping by, taking pictures,” said artist Dan Ricketts, St. Louis Sign & Mural. Rickets spent a few days painting three murals at the Court Square building at 11th and Walnut streets downtown. He said he was commissioned to come up with public art. The three murals, cleverly distanced six feet apart, feature COVID-19 guidance.
