A Big Night for Ray Harvey Art in Hannibal!

I’ve always said the life of an artist takes many turns but what happened on November 7th, 2023 I never saw coming. On that evening at the monthly Hannibal City Council meeting Micheal Dobson, mayor pro tem, presented me with a proclamation on behalf of the city. This proclamation describes the large body of work I’ve created in Hannibal since 2018. About twenty-five murals and hundreds of new friends have developed since the first phone call from local developer Brad Walden that Spring of 2018. Dobson stated that the work I’ve created has become its own tourist draw in the city. Then, along with the proclamation was a gift of the “key to the city.” A gift that I only believed happened in movies, was placed in my hand. A symbol to say thank you and I’m always welcome in Hannibal. What began with one phone call and one painting has developed into a relationship with one of the best small towns in Missouri!
