In other ASU news, internationally renown artist
Brenda Mauney Council will begin painting a series of murals in the atrium of
the university library on May 10.
The murals are expected to take about 45 days
to complete. Working on a scaffold as high as 75 feet, Council will combine
acrylic and water-based paint to create a three-dimensional effect. The central
theme, "A Quest for Knowledge," will dominate the mural through
symbols and representational forms focusing on Appalachian's academic and
athletic programs. The mural will also highlight the history of the community
of Boone and the university's continuing legacy. The work is expected to be
unveiled in July.
