Bowie State University & UMD Presidents Celebrate Unity Mural Displayed in State Capitol (406 hits)

BSU & UMD Students and Faculty Used Art to Foster Peace, Justice & Unity

WHAT: Bowie State University President Aminta H. Breaux and University of Maryland, College Park President Wallace Loh will join together at the Maryland House of Delegates Office Building to celebrate the public display of a Unity Mural, created by art students at both universities. Designed by BSU and UMD students and faculty, the multicolored, four-panel Unity Mural was developed to use art and creative expression to foster joint stewardship of the relationships between the campuses and promote the themes of peace, justice and unity. The mural was live painted by more than 250 people at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center’s NextNOW Fest in September 2017. The mural now hangs in a first-floor art gallery hallway of the House of Delegates Office Building for the duration of the 2018 legislative session.
