Wishes & Reflections

70′ x 30′ Mural Located in the Wish Tree Courtyard

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.
