Art students in Roger Casillas’ class assembled the 18-panel mural out of pieces of glass and mirror which now hangs in the school’s library. The mural measures over 12 feet long and 6 feet high.
The mural depicts grizzly bears, which is the Stein High’s mascot, in a stream. The 15 art students who worked on mosaic pieced it together over two years, meticulously shaping the different colors of glass pieces into the final design.
The mural was dedicated to George and Evelyn Stein who the school is named after. George Stein died in September of last year but his wife Evelyn attended the ceremony with her family.
Students who took part in building the mural talked about the process along with their instructor Casillas. At the end of the ceremony the new mural was unveiled to the crowd by the art students.
