Mornings On Main
The 4 P's of Murals

September 7, 2022

Join Missouri Main Street Connection on September 7, 2022, at 8:30am in Central Time (US and Canada) for another installment of the Mornings on Main webinar series.

Historic districts across Missouri use murals to showcase their local history, liven up downtown with the arts, and be a draw for tourists to take cool selfies; but how did they make it happen? This Mornings on Main panel webinar will host several mural experts, along with Missouri Main Street Connection’s own Ben White, to discuss the four P’s of murals: Planning, Prepping, Painting, and Protecting. These four P’s will help those seeking direction on murals in their downtown. These works of art not only last for years but will be a big hit with the community and volunteers.

Speaker Information:

Jacob Duncan

Jacob Duncan has been a freelance mural artist since 2010, combining innovative airbrush techniques with traditional media. Born and raised in Excelsior Springs Missouri, Jacob has branched out to complete mural projects throughout the Midwest and beyond.


Angela Poling

Angela and her late husband, Kelly, opened Original Artworks by Kelly in March of 1998.  This gallery served as a mainstay for matting and framing in Chillicothe, MO and the surrounding areas.  In July 2000, Kelly and Angela embarked in the business of murals.  In 18 years, Kelly completed 61 murals in the Midwest.  They worked together with communities and organizations that wanted to improve their downtown’s aesthetic value.

Angela’s biggest claim to fame is bringing the love of her life, Kelly Poling, to Chillicothe.
