This 70 ft. x 30 ft. mural, “Wishes and Reflections”, is in the Wabash Courtyard just off the Wabash Alley near Fretboard Coffee and Wishflour Bakery.
This mural by Shannon Webster celebrates our community and its history by enhancing the “togetherness” this courtyard provides—a place that is welcoming to everyone. It’s a meeting place where you can build relationships by reflecting on the past and making wishes for the future. A closer look at the mural reveals reflections of some of our city landmarks, such as the Tiger Hotel, Ernie’s diner, Jesse Hall and the Mizzou columns, and Columbia’s City Hall. To the right is a giant wish tree supporting wishes for a better tomorrow. Hopefully, you will enjoy finding something new each time you visit.
Shannon Webster is a local Columbia artist with an art studio and gallery located in this same alleyway just a few steps away. He is best known for his large-scale paintings of cityscapes and landscapes and as a designer for several national brands and community organizations.
