Robert Morrow taught art at Kent State University for over thirty years and was a well-known muralist whose works appear nationwide. His local works include murals for Acme and the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music building at Kent State. Athena was the Greek goddess of wisdom, arts, literature, and drama. The material used in the mural is fiberglass formed over chicken wire over a wood frame. The color was obtained by mixing dry color pigment into liquid plastic and drying it on the form. All the elements of the mural are separate units assembled piecemeal and are symbolic of Athena.
