It is the pleasure of Muncie Artists Guild to present this mural of Beneficence to Ball State honoring the University’s 100th year Anniversary. The mural dimensions are 9'x6' and is comprised of 24 panels painted by 18 artists each with their own unique style and interpretation of the subject matter.
Sadly, one of our oldest and dearest members, who also painted a panel, passed away on Sunday, June 9th at the age of 91. We would like to dedicate this mural in memory of our dear friend, Sylvia LaRue. She was loved by all for her kindness, sense of humor, artistry, sass and was a true delight to know.
In honor of Ball State University and in memory of Sylvia LaRue and to the people of our community, we offer this mural as a token of our appreciation and thankfulness.
Sylvia and Sharon LaRue
