In honor of its Centennial year, Saint Mary's University commissioned Brother Roderick Robertson, professor of art and design, to complete a timeline wall mural of the university's history.
The timeline installation will be unveiled during a public ceremony 10:45 a.m. Friday, October 5th, in the lobby of the Toner Student Center.
Brother Roderick, a 1963 alumnus, has taught art and design at Saint Mary's for 35 years. This timeline depicts the first century of Saint Mary's University. Fittingly, the artist wanted to tell the university's story symbolically with 100 photographs.
The timeline includes many of the faces from SMU who have shaped its heritage and transformed the school's educational experience and includes the first photograph of Saint Mary's College taken in 1912.
The SMU class of 2011 helped fund the project through their senior class gift.
