Unity Mural

Unity mural

A 20x8-foot mural recently installed outside the entrance to the College of Design depicts the partnership between Iowa State and the community of Ames. Created by Iowa State students, the mural features images of community landmarks, activities, zip codes, maps and quotes from university administrators and Ames Mayor Ted Tedesco. The mural was the winning design in a campus contest open to students. It will be on display for three years. Photo by Bob Elbert.
