New Mural to be Uncovered at Zeigler Re-Opening
A new mural will be unveiled January 26 at the library on the Ketchikan Campus. Students in Mary Ida Henrikson’s Mural: History, Function and Execution class collaborated on the three panel project. Only a few people have seen the finished work and the only clues are it’s colorful and it represents the Ketchikan area.
While a collaborative art work could be a clash of ideas, color schemes, and sore toes, Ms. Henrikson says each class member had a particular, necessary part to play in the mural’s production; colorists, photographer, designer, people whose specialty was filling in details and artists who like to paint large. The project was a success and the students want to do another mural together.
The Friday night celebration will begin at 6 in the UAS Ketchikan Campus Library in the Zeigler Building on the Ketchikan Campus. A crowd of art lovers is hoped for; everyone is invited to attend.
Also on the Ketchikan Campus Saturday, January 26, will be a Renovation Celebration to commemorate the completion of the year long remodel of the Zeigler and Paul Buildings.
Chancellor John Pugh will attend, as will former Representative Bill Williams who was instrumental in getting funds for the project, and new District One Representative Kyle Johansen.
There will be a short ceremony at noon; tours of both buildings will follow.
