Big, free, mural on a public wall. Very cleverly painted to look 3D. Park in the street nearby for 25c for 20 minutes, which is enough to see the mural and the World's largest fire hydrant nearby (see separate review and photos). Both fun -...More

Spend a few minutes enjoying this incredible mural. The longer you stand there, you start to feel a part of it.

This is one of Artist Blue Sky's original murals on the side of the Farm Credit building. I worded here in the early 1980's and it was there then. Really cool at night. Looks like you could drive right into the building!

It’s a mural. That’s it. Good for 30 seconds of contemplation and 10 seconds of photo ops. Then you’re done.

It's a little tricky trying to find this attraction, but it's worth looking for it. The artist did a great job. If you're in Columbia, take a look at it.

This attraction is fun. It's also right next to the World's Largest Fire Hydrant, so you can see both at the same time. If you are visiting Columbia I would recommend taking the time, it only takes a few minutes and you can get some...More

This is kind of a drive by attraction, but it was fun to see. We had just visited the State House and were on our way home when we came upon it. I'm glad we did.

It’s a fun thing to do and see. There is plenty of parking meters around and the large fire hydrant is in the same spot. We enjoyed taking pictures and it’s free.
