FHU Student Commissioned to Create Lectureship Painting Celebrating Freed-Hardeman's 150th Anniversary


Student Success // December 6, 2019

Christina Hines, sophomore art education major, was commissioned to paint a three by four foot canvas which will hang in Old Main to commemorate 150 years of FHU. The painting includes familiar faces such as FHU students, professors, past presidents and members of the Shannon family.

"The research I did to prepare for this painting was very rewarding," Hines said. "I learned so much about the history of the university. My hope is that this painting celebrates the history of our university and honors the 150th anniversary of FHU."

Prints of the painting will be sold during Lectureship in February 2020. The theme will be "Our Place in His Story: Remembering the Past, Anticipating the Future."
