Architect Gregory Walker and artist Benjamin Wiemeyer, two of the partners in the Salt Lake City, Utah-based design firm WOW Atelier, visited Mississippi State University last week for events made possible by the Harrison Lecture Series.


The School of Architecture (coordinated by Assistant Professor Jacob Gines) partnered with Wiemeyer and the Starkville-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District to paint a graffiti-style mural on one of the walls in the Armstrong Middle School Gymnasium. Wiemeyer, who arrived in Starkville on April 4 unveiled his latest work with a public ceremony at 5 p.m. Thursday [April 14].


Wiemeyer presented “Changing the Face of the World with Mural Painting” to art students mid-day on Friday, and the partners finished their visit with a 4 p.m. Harrison Lecture in the Robert and Freda Harrison Auditorium.
