I recently attended the dedication ceremony for our new Student Community Center where we unveiled Professor Emeritus Malaquias Montoya’s latest mural – The Practice of Freedom. The mural is 24 feet long, 9 feet tall and represents the culturally rich, inclusive, transformative and empowering principles that define UC Davis. It is Professor Montoya’s first mural at UC Davis, and I am thrilled that he chose the heart of our campus for its location.  His months of hard work were captured from start-to-finish in a slide show. I invite you to view it and share your thoughts.
