Connect 2 Culture held a private, “Topping Out” ceremony this morning at The Cornell Complex in downtown Joplin. Topping Out is a builders’ rite traditionally held when the final beam on any steel structure is set, marking a major milestone in the structure’s construction. The 37,000 square foot Cornell Complex broke ground February 1st of this year and is expected to be completed in late 2022 and be the new home for C2C and the Spiva Center for the Arts.
