Students Paint Mural on Cafeteria Wall

The Mangum High School Gifted and Talented students painted a mural guided by Patrick Riley, Oklahoma Arts Council Artist in Residence. This activity is a part of an Artist in Residence grant provided by the Oklahoma Arts Council and Mangum Public Schools. Mangum High School art students used city landscape drawings from Mangum to design the buildings on the mural in the high school cafeteria. The mural is a tribute of the fighting Tiger spirit of our community history. Future plans are to expand the mural to include more buildings.
