A new mural was dedicated today at the University of Florida called Moving Water by Miami artist Xavier Cortada. The event started with a procession of students carrying water collected from various bodies of water culminating with a ceremony in front of Library West, directed by Mr. Cortada, aimed at spiritually healing the polluted waters.
Then, at the Computer Science & Engineering Building, we saw his work of art: a 32-foot long tiled mural of the Panama Canal, in recognition of the 100th Anniversary of the canal.
