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 some time 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.
