VCU Libraries Mural
Art Work Designed And Painted By Communication Arts: Illustration • Drawing • Visual Studies students.
The mural captures and reflects not only the soul of the University but also its unique location and role in the community and in the city. Located between the first and second floors in the James Branch Cabell Library on the Monroe Park Campus, the mural was a collaboration among VCU students, faculty and VCU Libraries.
