Marysville Mural, 1984

Carlyn Ann Tucker
(American, born 1956)

Location: Marshall Elementary, Marysville


Artist Carlyn Ann Tucker created Marysville Mural to celebrate the Marysville community. The two panels feature historical photographs and maps, symbols, and diagrams. She notes, "This multilevel description of a familiar place would point out and raise questions about the differences between various systems of notation with which we describe our world."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Marysville School District.
