Mural Painting is often thought of to be a modern urban phenomenon, but in fact murals have been created since ancient times. From the cave paintings of Lescaux to the street murals of today, people have been leaving signs of their own existence in many places around the world. A mural is a walk through history.

We will look at murals that emancipate, show freedom of expression, social activism, and propaganda.

Lecturer: Denise Drum Baker is an artist and recently retired professor of visual arts at Sandhills Community College. She earned her Master’s from Appalachian State University.
