Jim Brega with Guillermo Aranda

I had the privilege of being one of the speakers at a ceremony in the new Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union at SDSU this morning. The ceremony was the re-dedication in its new location of the Mural Triptico that was painted in 1970-72 by Mexican muralist Gilberto Ramirez in the old Montezuma Hall. The new 200,000-square-foot Student Union building is officially opening this week.

The photo at right is of me with one of the original artist’s assistants, Guillermo Aranda, in front of the artist’s working drawing for the mural. I donated the drawing to the Associated Students in 2009. To discover the story about my connection to the drawing and the mural, read my speech here.
