Telling a story

Portion of 16-piece glass mural in Lagomarcino north atrium

"Elements of Erudition," a mural of 16 laminated glass pieces by Des Moines artists Rebecca Ekstrand and Tom Rosborough, was installed in the new north atrium of Lagomarcino Hall last month. The collage of images symbolizes the School of Education's core mission. Iowa's Art in State Buildings legislation requires that 0.5 percent of a new building or remodeling budget be set aside to purchase art, making the mural part of Iowa State's Art on Campus collection.

The School of Education will celebrate its remodeled space and new leadership during a reception on Friday, April 24 (3-5 p.m.). A ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Lagomarcino courtyard. Photo by Christopher Gannon.
