Campus: IU Bloomington
Indiana University added the eighth panel to the collection of historical murals that are displayed in the Wright Quad food court. These murals showcase IU Bloomington’s history from 1820 to 2020. The newest mural was created by Professor Caleb Weintraub from the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design.
Weintraub completed his six-panel mural in his IU studio; the finished paintings were then installed at Wright Quad during the 2019-2020 winter break. Weintraub and student assistants followed an iterative process involving computerized virtual drawing, painting, and sculpting in preparation for physical painting-with content based on research and suggestions from university and campus historians.
The new panels measure 6’ x 36.’ Indiana University dedicated the new mural during the 200th Anniversary dinner held in Wright Quad on January 20, 2020.
