International street artist ARCY will come to El Dorado Springs Friday June 2 as part of his 2023 live event mural tour across the United States. Known for his paint-splashed style, ARCY spray paints 8’ x 12’ live event walls in front of onlookers in cities across the nation.
The El Dorado Springs event “Legacy and Vision Alive at Liston” will celebrate rural youth, education, and entrepreneurship at the Liston Center (formerly the Liston School), 508 N. Main Street. The Liston Center is named after longtime local educator Sally Liston. ARCY’s mural will portray a young, turn-of-the-century Sally Liston imagining infinite horizons for herself and all El Dorado Springs children.
“Legacy and Vision Alive at Liston” will take place 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with an artist reception following at 4 p.m. The event will include a local artist and maker space with demonstrations and activities for children and adults, as well as J&T’s Burgers and Kool Krush food trucks.
Area residents are invited to come throughout the day to watch ARCY paint and to enjoy the full day of festivities. Local artists and crafters are also invited to join the event’s Art and Maker Space. Artists and crafters will provide demonstrations of their work and offer hands-on activities. An Art and Maker Space application is available at <bit.ly/ListonArt>.
“Legacy and Vision Alive at Liston” is a free event hosted by West Central Missouri Community Action Agency and the New Growth Women’s Business Center. The opportunity to have ARCY come to El Dorado Springs is the result of a winning raffle ticket at a recent Missouri Main Street conference. West Central and New Growth opted to honor the city of El Dorado Springs and Sally Liston’s legacy with a mural at the Liston Center. The two organizations work out of the Liston Center providing assistance to rural individuals, families, and entrepreneurs.
