The Mural at Coates Library

James Sicner’s mural, “Man's Evolving Images, Printing and Writing,” is an icon of Trinity University. The mural is the largest known collage  mural of its kind, with over 800 images used. Since its completion in 1983, visitors and residents alike are amazed by the mural, whether it is their 1st or 100th viewing of the piece. With each fresh glance, new parts and pieces of artwork can be found. This project aims to categorize Sicner’s mural and explore themes, mediums, and  artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Gustave Doré, and William Blake.
