The Ketchikan Mural.
Barrie, Don; And Others
The Ketchikan Mural Project was a community supported program funded in part through CETA, Title III, Summer Program for Economically Disadvantaged Youth. The 120' by 70' mural, located on the Ketchikan Community College campus, is called "Return of the Eagle" or "Return of Supernatural Powers." It was executed by muralist Don Barrie with the help of 25 CETA co-workers selected on the basis of financial need and artistic ability. The mural is composed of 6 panels designed and painted by Mr. Barrie and 21 shields designed and painted by the co-workers. The 8-week project was begun in June 1978 with mural assistants to represent legends or events significant in Haida culture. They spent the remaining six weeks preparing the mural wall and executing their shields and cartouches. Designed and compiled for classroom use, this booklet contains photographs of the 21 shields designed by the CETA apprentices. Each photograph is accompanied by the designer's narrative account of the events depicted in the shield and by a brief biographical statement including the designer's name, age, interests, and vocational goals. Related learning activities for students are listed under the headings of writing and reading, art, and drama. (JH)
