Bicentennial Beacons

During the Bicentennial year, Hannibal artists created 10 “Bicentennial Beacons.” The word beacon can have many meanings - a lighthouse guiding ships at sea, or a watchfire burning in the night. It can also bring to mind a beckoning, hope, a celebration, and looking to the future, like a beacon of hope. Hannibal, Missouri has been many things to many people throughout its history, and our artists are alive with ideas that celebrate the creativity that is Hannibal!

 

Beacons are displayed outdoors during the summer season. Here are the places you can see the Bicentennial Beacons:
