  • Historic Latinx murals return to campus Feb. 21

    Restored murals “The Graduate” and “La Victoria” are reinstalled at the Illini Union.

    “The Graduate” and “La Victoria” arrive at their new home in the southwest stairwell at the Illini Union. The vibrant room-size murals, created in 1974 as protest pieces inside the former site of the Latina/Latino studies department and La Casa Cultural Latina, were removed when the building was demolished and later restored to their original condition.
