Route 66 Mural City, Cuba
In 2002, Cuba was designated the "Route 66 Mural City" by the Missouri legislature. The many murals - a result of the development of the Viva Cuba organisation - have created a lot of interest and beautified the Route 66 corridor through Cuba.
The murals continue to attract many tourists, as well as local people. With the community embracing the idea of public art, Cuba has become an “art friendly” town.
