Title: Centennial Stairs
Artist: Kyle McKenzie
Location: MSSU Spiva Library (stairwell between 3rd and 4th floors)
Date Completed: December 2016
Description: Before finding it’s home in the MSSU Spiva Library, this mural was originally designed for a local library’s 2014 centennial. It is about progress. As the library patron walks up the stairs she is accompanied by allegorical figures walking through time, and climbing above and beyond the circumstances they were born into. Each panel symbolizes the essential role of libraries and learning at a different point in time by showing important cultural progress in each era.
