Art Instructor Impacts NIU College Bridge Program

Eric Fuertes, Instructor in the NIU School of Art and Design, has been working with 44 students in this summer's College Bridge Program to create a "comural." The comural (Mobile Community Murals) consists of four large panels which, when placed in a row, create one complete mural.

Eric and the students utilized NIU's Mission Statement and the four themes of teaching and learning, research and scholarship, creativity and artistry, and outreach and service to determine the subject matter for each of the four panels.


Assisted by School of Art and Design graduate assistant Allen Moore and four counselors from the program, Eric and the students have completed the work which will be on display through the end of this month in the first floor lobby of the Holmes Student Center.

Congratulations to all!
