I get to see amazing art work every day on the campus at which I teach. Lassen Hall, which houses the administration center on the Sacramento State University campus, sports this incredible mural, depicting the Aztec ruler, Montezuma.
This mural, celebrating the culture of the Mexican people, was painted in October, 1978 by Ed Rivera, a long-time Sacramento resident.
The 96-foot-wide by 24-foot-tall mural, which depicts the Mexican community’s American Indian-Spanish heritage, features major symbols of the Mexican culture, including an image of the Aztec ruler, Montezuma, an eagle with a serpent in its beak, the Aztec calendar and an ear of corn.
