The campus community gathered in the hallway between Old Main and the Library on Tuesday, February 4 for the debut of the new sesquicentennial mural on campus.

Hand painted by Buffalo artist Edreys Wajed, the mural was designed to symbolize 150 years of excellence at Canisius. The project was directed by Richard Reitsma, PhD, chair of the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, and Yvonne Widenor, visiting assistant professor and director of the Art History Program.

The debut of the mural is the latest in a series of events the college is hosting throughout 2019-20 to commemorate Canisius’ 150 years of excellence. Click here to view a full list of upcoming sesquicentennial events.
