Cover thumbnail for Genesis Mural and Preparatory  Drawings Genesis Mural and Preparatory Drawings

Rico Lebrun (1900-1964) painted the Genesis mural on the interior wall of the south entrance of Frary Hall in 1960. Along with José Clemente Orozco's Prometheus mural, it is one of the most important artistic treasures of Pomona College. The monumental figure of Noah sheltering a child (shown in the image here) serves as the mural's visual and symbolic center, while surrounding Noah are representations of the Deluge, Job, Sodom and Gomorrah, Cain and Abel, and Adam and Eve.
