UNT Multicultural Center Mural
The Art in Public Places Committee has selected Chicago artist Damon Lamar Reed to complete the project. The Multicultural Center, located on the second floor of the Eagle Student Union, will be officially opened on September 1, 2010.
The UNT Multicultural Center was established with the goal that it would be a place where students and community members could experience the cultural wealth of the University, with a central purpose to teach diversity through student engagement and promote student success. The Multicultural Center provides resources, information, educational opportunities, and events that build inclusion focusing on five areas of diversity: ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and disability.
For more information about the mission and activities of the Center, see http://edo.unt.edu/content/multicultural-center and http://edo.unt.edu/content/womens-center.
The Art in Public Places Program is currently coordinating two additional projects for buildings on the UNT campus.
