Discovery Of Mural Excites Many In Iowa City

IOWA CITY, Iowa - An unexpected discovery was made this week in downtown Iowa City while crews knocked over a building.

Construction crews on the ped mall were working to make room for a new 14-story building when they discovered a 1970's era mural on a neighboring building. The mural depicts three bison, which have been covered up since the 80's.

"It's like a time capsule," said Donna Friedman, the former University of Iowa Arts Professor who helped craft the painting. "I can't believe how good of shape it's in."

Friedman and her students started painting various murals around downtown during the mid 70's. Friedman said it was an effort to "spruce" up downtown during a construction renewal period.

Construction of the 14-story building will likely re-cover the mural, but developers are looking at ways of preserving at least part of it.
