As part of TCU鈥檚 150th anniversary, the university highlighted notable Horned Frog leaders who found their inspiration at TCU with a series of hand-painted murals in cities across America.

The larger-than-life artistic portraits appeared in select U.S. cities to recognize outstanding individuals who represent the power of TCU鈥檚 alumni leading on in extraordinary ways in their chosen fields.

The campaign closed with an on-campus mural encouraging visitors to 鈥渕uralize鈥 themselves and picture themselves as Horned Frog leaders and, as the installation says, 鈥淒ream Big. Be Bold. Lead On.鈥 The mural is still on display on Lubbock Street, just north of Berry Street.

Below, we revisit the other murals that appeared across the country.
