Visitors of the Logan Library may have noticed that throughout the building we have quite a few excellent art pieces. In addition to these fine pieces, library patrons have also enjoyed the community art wall where novice and experienced artists have displayed their work. We have a proud history of displaying art and are now excited to display a new mural on canvas in the Virginia Hanson Special Collections Room.

The mural is large (24 feet long) and was painted in 1964 by Utah State University Professors Everett C. Thorpe and Harrison T. Groutage, two well-known names in Utah art history. Hoehne, the third name on the mural is currently unknown. The piece depicts various scenes throughout Cache and Rich counties.

Little is known about the history of the piece except that it likely once hung somewhere on campus, was sometime removed and placed in storage, and it hasn't been displayed for decades. Recently the piece was given a new home at the library so the public could once again enjoy the details found in the piece. If you know anything about its history, please let us know, and be sure to come into special collections to view it.
