Drop by library to see Rolla Mural restoration

Posted by on February 5, 2018

Local artist Dan Woodward is restoring “The Rolla Mural” on the second floor of the Curtis Laws Wilson Library, where it will remain after his restoration work is finished in March. First created by Sidney Larson, the mural depicts the history of Rolla from 1844 to the 1950s. The 5-foot-by-22-foot piece depicts several historical figures, moments and buildings in Rolla’s history.
