Adventure Art on the Mighty ‘MO will be a video series about art, adventure, and life along the Missouri River told through the act of painting, storytelling, and paddling all 2,341 miles of it. Each episode will take place at a different site, in which a watercolor painting is created. The painting will be the vessel through which larger questions are asked, observations made, and river stories told. The intention of this work is to create an updated portrait of the river, challenge some of the stereotypes associated with it, and inspire broader public engagement and appreciation.


The adventurous component of this project will begin in June 2022 at the headwaters of the Missouri, in Three Forks, Montana and conclude in St. Louis in early September. While in production, you can follow the adventure through periodic river updates on Steve's instagram @stevesnell
