Thanks again to the students and staff members who submitted more than 100 ideas for our mural project. Some of the best entries were published on the “Submissions” page of our mural website. All have influenced the final design, which will be made public online on May 5. When you visit the website, please also cast your vote on how you want to celebrate the mural on June 4.

Thank you,
Theresa Dovi
