Stately Images: The Public Art of Missouri's State Capitol

Experience a sense of awe and art appreciation in this locally produced documentary by Ozarks Pubic Television, highlighting the impressive public art at Missouri’s State Capitol. Today's center of state government is the third capitol building constructed in Jefferson City, the first two structures were destroyed by fire. In 1911 Missourians approved funding for the current capitol building and a design that would showcase cultural and state history. Available construction monies resulted in a one-of-a-kind and breathtaking collection of stained glass, murals, carvings and statuary that evocatively portrays Missouri’s legendary and beloved history.
