Meet & Greet with Muralist Jessica Sabogal

All are invited to come and meet Jessica Sabogal, renowned Colombian-American artist and creator of Kellogg Library's powerful new stairwell mural "In This Classroom, There Are No Walls", on Thursday, Feb. 7 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Library's 3rd-floor lobby. 

The CSUSM community can view the project up close, chat with the artist, meet some of the CSUSM students portrayed in the mural, and enjoy refreshments. According to Jessica, “At a time when human rights are being challenged, college campuses must be places of refuge... this mural is a celebration of our differences, and a symbol of our liberation.”

Jessica was assisted on this project by artist Shanna Strauss and CSUSM students Danni Flowers and Erin Atkins. Generous support was provided by a College of Education, Health, Human Services Instructionally Related Activities grant, as well as by the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
