Canon EOS Rebel T2i Photo #28 Mural: "Texas Moves Toward Statehood"

For five decades an expansive wall painting has greeted visitors in the lobby of TSLAC’s Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building, just east of the Texas State Capitol in Austin. Created by artists Peter Hurd and Peter Rogers in the summer of 1964, the mural provides an artistic panorama of historical events, groups and individuals that shaped Texas history for the past 400 years. In March 2014, to celebrate the mural's 50th anniversary, we opened a new exhibit (also in our lobby) featuring selected documents and artifacts from the agency’s archives that illustrate stories in the mural.
