Adding art to the community

This video requires Flash Player.

Augustana student Felipe Villagomez '11, an anthropology major from Moline, came up with the idea to paint a mural on the retaining wall that runs along the 38th Street hill on Augustana's campus.

The Augustana art department and the student group Order of the Phoenix took control of the project and created a painting that celebrates the music of different cultures.

Kaitlin Sirois '10, a business administration and speech communication major from Naperville, Illinois, produced the video at right, which highlights the project.

The mural also was highlighted in a campus news story.
