THE MAKING OF THE COMMISSIONED SAN MARCOS 60'MURAL












COMMENTS FROM MY STUDENTS REGARDING THE COLORS OF TEXAS MURAL
Susan Harmon


The "Colors of Texas" mural looks like it must of have always been there and the colors are so beautiful.  When I looked at the pictures and studied the mural, I wondered if it actually spelled something behind the abstract design.  After searching online, I found Prof. Harmon's website and found what must be the words worked into the artwork.  We go to San Marcos on occasion, so we'll be on the look out next time where there.

The "Colors of Texas" mural I think is a very beautiful piece of art. Specially after the flooding, I think it gave the surrounding community a feeling of hope, the colors are so vibrant and beautiful. After such disaster I would see this piece as a reminder that Texas is beautiful that they will get through it, to see positivity in the colors and abstracts.

"The Colors of Texas" is so beautiful and creative. I really like all the different colors incorporated in the mural and the placement. I think the colors really pop by the railroad tracks. I also think it was very encouraging to put such a bright piece in the city after all the flooding. I used to live in New Braunfels, so I traveled to San Marcos frequently. It was all ready such a pretty and scenic area, and I think the "The Colors of Texas" just added to the beauty of the city.
