Ethnic Cultural Center Renovation Update
Exciting progress continues to be made on the renovation project for the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity’s Ethnic Cultural Center.
On Friday, August 19, the walls containing the historic murals in the ECC were extracted from the building and transferred to a facility where they will be stored under archival conditions until being reinstalled in the new building.
Below is a quick look at the extraction process of the Native American Mural:
The process began with the mural being cut from the roof and surrounding walls. It was attached to metal beams that were connected to concrete blocks for support.
