Public Art Scavenger Hunt

Explore Columbia's artistic and sometimes hidden treasures of public art sculptures, murals and ghost signs found downtown, in the Arts District, on Columbia State's campus, and around town. Some are worthy of deep contemplation while others make for a great selfie!

Part of Columbia's unique appeal is discovering the neat little surprises that pop out at you in the way of street art, namely murals, ghost signs and a few pieces of public art. Let's see if you can find these top favorites in and around Columbia in your very own artistic scavenger hunt.
