COLUMBIA — This week, Missourian photographers captured photos of a painter finishing her work at a new hotel, families on spring break in town, the final Missouri men's basketball loss in the National Invitation Tournament and more.

In this photo by Sarah Rothberg, painter Lizzie Bryan applies a final coat of varnish to a mural at The Broadway hotel. The Broadway, which opened Wednesday, is a part of the DoubleTree line of the Hilton chain.

Garrett Boyce, 10, and his mother, Denise Boyce, spend time together at Paint the Town Columbia on their last day of spring break in this photo by Sarah Rothberg. Local businesses, including Paint the Town Columbia and Empire Roller Rink, had special sessions and activities for families over the school break.

Sarah Rothberg captured the damage when a 2003 Pontiac rear-ended a motorcycle heading north on Providence Road on Friday. The motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to an area hospital in an ambulance. The other driver was not harmed.
