Ketchikan, Alaska - The public is invited to the unveiling of a 3-panel mural created by students who took Artist and UAS Ketchikan Instructor Mary Henrikson's Mural Design and Painting class. The unveiling will be held on January 25, 2008 at 5:00pm at the University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan Technical Center, 600 Stedman. The mural will hang in the Robertson Building of the Tech Center.

This is the second mural to be unveiled by UAS Ketchikan which features the work of student artists.

Henrikson was also the instructor of the course for the first mural.

This year, students from all walks of life spent the fall 2007 semester studying murals, designing their piece and creating three vivid and interesting 4' x 8' panels. Student artists include Callie Bellon, Grace Freeman, Ashley Glenn, Shoshana Hales, Chase Hoyt, Jacob Mertz, Valerie Stanley, Jackie Williams and Beverly Zaugg.
