Tree mural

New mural largest ever

The new two-story etched glass mural on the east side of the new Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center represents the largest mural installation ever on the ISU campus. Minnesota artist Michaela Mahady (shown) created The Healing Tree, a flora and fauna-filled illustration of the relationship among plants, animals and humans. Other Mahady panels relate the history of veterinary medicine along the north/south corridor of the small animal clinic and depict a series of running horses in the equine center.

Mahady's popular murals also grace LeBaron Hall auditorium (Procession) and the dairy farm visitors center (River of Milk).
