I-Beam Covering

Hello I am finishing my basement and I am trying to keep The I-Beam visible. My wife and I want to paint it and then put a saying on it on one side and a picrure on the otehr. The only problem is where the beam meets the wall. My drywall only covers around the outside of the beam, where the beam is thin in the middle its all open through the wall. How do I cover this. I have already drwalled and primed. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Use construction adhesive to attach wooden strips to the beam and install sheetrock onto them.
