A mural created by four Allan Hancock College students was unveiled during a brief ceremony at the college Tuesday afternoon.
The mural is 24-feet tall and eight-feet wide and is called Depth of Humanity. The mural will be hung on the northwest wall of the college’s Math and Science Complex.
A press release from Hancock College described the new artwork:
“The mural depicts a woman’s face superimposed over a turquoise and magenta background. Her free-flowing hair swirls downward 20 feet morning into floating betta fish. The figures appear to be submersed in an ocean filled with bubbles and an octopus.”
The mural is the result of collaboration between the Allan Hancock College Foundation, Santa Maria Arts Council, the college’s fine arts department and Art on Campus Committee..
