Snively's mural, a year in the making, unveils in Pauling
• Geology department illustrates 570 million years of dirt
Feature Editor
A pair of enthusiastic Art and
Science Departments mounted a
new geology mural in the biology
hall of the Pauling Center last Fri­
day, Jan. 8.
“I’ve been hearing about it for
months,” Joan Harrison, science
lab manager, said. “It’s nothing
like I imagined.”
The official presentation of the
mural will be conducted with a
slide show by Physical Science
Instructor John Snively on Thurs­
day, Jan. 14 at noon in Pauling 101.
A year ago, Snively had a vision,
an idea that would benefit students.
The mural will be used as a learn­
ing tool for the Science Depart­
Real rock samples as well as
animal fossils are embedded in the
mural, corresponding to the proper
layer of sediment. The mural is a
geological timeline spanning 570
million years.
The mural is divided into three
sections, or levels. The first, de­
picting the Grand Canyon, repre­
sents the Earth’s deepest layers of
rock. The middle panels are of
what lays exposed in the Zion Na­
tional Park, and the last set of pan­
els represent the Bryce Canyon
whose layers of sediment are those
that are on the top.
Art students who deserve recog­
nition for their work include Nic
Delgado, Diane Gauthier, Lauren
Robertson, Wanda Robertson and
Steve Wilson.
The mural was funded by the
College Foundation.
Diane Gauthier, John Snively and David Anderson eyeball the marvealous mural paitned by students from the art department.
Embedded in the proper
layers, plants and animals
correspond to their time
period. The mural will be used
as a learning and teaching tool
for the Science Department for
many years to come.
