Donald Drumm and Murals on Campus
The Jerome Library mural is an iconic landmark on campus, visible for miles. Donald Drumm, artist-in-residence, created the Jerome mural, as well as murals in the Saddlemire Student Services, Psychology, and Education Buildings. Well-known in Ohio, one of the artist's sculptures had a role in the Kent State shootings on May 4th, 1970 --see the archival material at Kent State Libraries. The 40th anniversary of Jerome Library was celebrated in 2007 -- read more information about the mural construction and the controversy surrounding it here.
