New mural unveiled at Palmer Commons
The mural, approximately 17 feet high by 78 feet long, features the School of Literature, Science and the Arts theme "Language: The Human Quintessence." It was created by non-art majors taking an "Art in Public Spaces/Big Paintings" course taught last fall by Mark Tucker, art director for the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program (and creator of the popular downtown FestiFools parade in the spring).
