Art Happening: Student’s Winning 172 Tremont Mural Comes into Focus

Last fall, Student Engagement and Leadership (SEAL) put out a call to community members — students in particular — for design concepts for a mural that would grace a wall of the 172 Tremont Street kitchen. SEAL reviewed submissions, whittled them down to a handful of options, and put them to a vote.

The winner was Lily Walkow ’21, a Media Arts Production major, whose completed mural was unveiled on February 14. Justin Schmalholz ’22 captured the mural’s progress in photos.
