Hastings College Students Paint Murals for Art Class Final

Two newly painted murals on the rear outside wall of a coffeehouse in Hastings will serve as the final for a Hastings College art class.   One mural will be a cornfield scene, and the other includes an urban skyline.  The six artists are members of an advanced painting class. The murals will take about a week to finish and will replace a test as the class final.  The paintings are the first college murals in downtown. The instructor says he hopes there will be more from students in his future classes.
