Mississippi Panorama

In the middle 1800’s, a young artist named John Banvard journeyed from one end of the Mississippi to the other and was inspired to paint a picture that could capture the glory of the river. The painting (which no longer exists) was three miles long, and he carried it all over the world to show people the wonder of the mighty river. Mississippi Panorama captures the spirit of that painting, and the creative essence of the man who made it.
