Arts & Culture
Rivers exude a spirit of untamable energy and motion; a uniting of the past with today and the future; a gathering place of people, a hub of commerce - all fertile ground for artisans. The Mississsippi River is, and always has been, an extraordinary canvas for artists to fill. Through cultures and time, the stories of the river unspool a ribbon of life, beauty, nature and people through a wide pallet of color and form. On your next Great River Road journey, take time to seek out and enjoy these rich gifts of the Mississippi.
