Visual Arts Building Home To Mysterious Underground Mural

If you walk out of Au Bon Pain toward Curtin Road following your least favorite class at Forum with your regular, watered-down French Vanilla cup of coffee, you’ll see steps and a pathway that leads to a stairwell.

The stairwell leads down to a graffiti-like mural, which centers on this portrait of a woman. In the painting, she’s depicted with a blue-ish yellow face and white hair rocking headphones.

After sleuthing the internet for any information about this mural, its origins remain unknown. However, a few professors from the visual arts department have claimed this mural has existed for over a decade, although they have no records on the artist or inspiration behind the work.

I’d encourage you to check this mural out for yourself, but I’d wait until warmer temperatures melt the rarely used, never salted stairwell. I busted my ass checking this bad boy out.
