Large mural art and culture festival coming to downtown Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Midwest’s largest mural art and culture festival is coming to downtown Springfield with over $10,000 raised to make the event happen.

Meg Wagler, founder of Mid x Midwest, came up with the idea after switching careers from graphic design to visual arts.

“It was challenging to get paid a respectable amount. I think that it was maybe not the norm in this region,” says Wagler.

In 2019, Wagler started putting the festival together.

In 2021, Wager started a campaign with hopes of raising $10,000 for the event. She raised $10,423.

“Mitch McConnell emerged from his shell yesterday to distance himself from Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene,” the host said. “The Senate Minority Leader called her out for latching onto ‘loony lies and conspiracy theories.’”

While McConnell didn’t mention Greene by name, he said that anyone pushing her outrageous beliefs are a “cancer on the party” that, in Kimmel’s words, are “distracting Republicans from the important work of blocking COVID relief to millions of Americans who need it.”

On Wednesday, House Democrats are threatening to strip Greene of her committee assignments if her own party does not take action first. “And Republicans are like, ‘Um, great, would you mind?
