In response to Nancy Walkup's comment re. John Biggers's mural at the > University of Houston: My class (Art Education Methods course) visited Mr. > Biggers last week and observed the mural in progress. We talked with Mr. > Biggers and his son, both of whom explained a lot of the symbolism embedded > in the mural, titled "The Saltmarsh". They were both very enthusiastic and > supportive of the vocation of the art education students and expressed > their respect for children, education, and women. It was a wonderful > experience; I'll be happy to speak more about it to anyone who writes to > me.
