Description

Above the north and south entrances of the Clifton M. Brakensiek Library are two stoneware ceramic bas-relief murals by Elaine Katzer. The north wall mural titled, Ben’s Promise, and the south wall mural titled Robin, Jenny, Eric, Ralph, and Lynne are both named after and dedicated to Katzer’s children. The fluid and natural shapes in both murals reference birth and life.
