After a year of celebrating Horned Frog alumni leaders around the nation, TCU鈥檚 Sesquicentennial mural project is coming home to Fort Worth, and right on the TCU campus.  

While the campaign thus far has concentrated on celebrating Horned Frog leaders in key markets across the country, this mural, designed by Natalie Neale 鈥23, celebrates distinguishing characteristics and aspects of TCU. It will be situated on Lubbock Avenue, just north of Berry Street. 

鈥淰isitors and members of the Fort Worth and TCU communities can stand in front of the artwork and become a part of the design,鈥 said Kris Copeland, creative director. The experience will include a digital filter where participants can 鈥渕uralize鈥 themselves as a TCU leader.   

Anchored by the TCU 150 logo and Sesquicentennial gradient, the mural design includes several intentional and iconic TCU details, such as Frog Fountain, the Brown-Lupton University Union, tulips, ivy from J.M.鈥疢oudy Visual Arts and Communication鈥疊uilding, native Texas fauna 鈥 including, of course, a horned frog 鈥 and various phrases such as 鈥淔ear the Frog,鈥 鈥淩iff Ram鈥 and the headline: 鈥淒ream Big. Be Bold. Lead On.鈥 Additional 鈥淓aster eggs鈥 are mixed into the design for visitors to discover.  

鈥淎s TCU turns its focus to the next 150 years, the mural features Monarch butterflies, symbols of transformation, and mockingbirds, symbolizing freedom and infinite possibilities,鈥 Copeland said. 鈥淐entral to the design is the motif of the 鈥榬ipple effect,鈥 where the impact of one person can spread out in all directions like water ripples, impacting others and ultimately the whole world. This concept is near and dear to Horned Frogs, as the flow of waters of Frog Fountain similarly represents how TCU students impact each other, spreading knowledge from one class to the next.鈥 

Throughout TCU鈥檚 150th, the mural campaign has featured Horned Frogs leading on in their chosen fields. The project began in New York City with 鈥淗amilton鈥 actor鈥, traveled to Los Angeles for television producer and wheelchair athlete鈥, visited Nashville for pro basketball player and youth advocate鈥痑nd landed in Chicago to feature four inspiring health care professionals:鈥.
