This mural was painted by Neal W. Werner, who, at the time, made murals around campus. Later, Werner became director of the College Center. The mural is located in a stairwell in Valsetz Dining Hall that is not open to the public, but many student workers and Valsetz staff still enjoy it. It depicts a forest of aspen trees along the walls and ceiling.
The photograph looks down a stairwell. The white tree trunks around the walls reach up so the tops of the trees continue up onto the ceiling in greens and yellows.
