“Carol Grotnes Belk Library and Information Commons is a point of great pride on this campus and across Western North Carolina. The series of murals being painted by Brenda Councill will distinguish this facility even more. It is truly special to have an artist who has such deep roots in the region bring her talents to this project. Her work will be enjoyed by those who visit the library for years to come.”

“This is a magnificent mural. The faculty and students look up to find the beginning of life, the fusion of a tumultuous primordial sky, sun radiating its life-giving rays evoking the elemental forces of nature and the evolution of the plant and animal kingdoms. It is more than we could have anticipated.”
