Weightlifting Room Wall Art

The wall is in the weightlifting room at Benson Gym.  It used to be bare or covered with posters.  Jason Coleman, a teacher and coach  in the Athletics & PE department, felt that it needed a facelift.  He drew up several different artwork for the wall and asked other people for their preference.  An artwork was selected and Jason asked Chester Kuschmider, head baseball coach and assistant football coach to paint the wall. 

Chester Kuschmider, an Art major, painted the wall with pride and love. 



Thank you to Jason Coleman and Chester Kuschmider for making this possible!
