This year, it all begins with an amazing display of 3D art that goes beyond the usual, inviting everyone to dive into the magic of height, width, and depth and become part of the street art.

In 2025, Joplin will host its first-ever international festival, welcoming ten of the world’s best street artists to show off their incredible talent. The next year, the city will burst with even more colour as twenty new 3D artworks pop up, drawing people in to enjoy the cool perspective tricks.

Jump to 2026, a huge year marking the 100th anniversary of Route 66. Joplin will be the centre of attention with a mind-blowing 3D experience.
