TCU is installing a mural in Sundance Square, measuring at least 96 feet in height and 90 feet in width, that will remain in the heart of downtown Fort Worth for at least five years. The mural is slated for completion in early November and will be located on the southeast corner of Throckmorton and 5th streets.

The design by Trevor Scott, a 2022 graduate of the graphic design program at TCU, will be both iconically TCU and iconically Fort Worth.

The mural is a gift from TCU to the city in celebration of its historical and integral relationship with Fort Worth as the university closes out its Sesquicentennial.

“As we set our sights on the next 150 years, its fitting to celebrate our deep connection with our city that has done so much for, and with, TCU,” Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. said. “We are pleased to leave this tangible mark on downtown Fort Worth, just as Horned Frogs leave a lasting positive impact in our community.”

According to The Princeton Review, TCU ranks among the top 10 for “Town and Gown Relations,” an honor bestowed upon universities that maintain a strong and meaningful relationship between their campus and the community. This bond traces back to the early days of TCUs founding when, in 1869, before founders Addison and Randolph Clark established what would become TCU in Thorp Spring, Texas, the first physical location for TCU in Fort Worth was downtown. In 1923, during TCUs Jubilee Year, university students and others gathered downtown for the TCU Jubilee Parade outside First Christian Church, located just a block away from the newest mural site.

Today, the ties between TCU and the city it calls home are stronger than ever. In addition to the mural in Sundance Square, visitors and locals can experience more exciting elements of TCUs 150th anniversary finale in the city of Fort Worth, including , Sonny Dykes as grand marshal of the downtown Parade of Lights, the annual , Botanic Garden’s and more.
