Date of Completion:

June 2023

Mural Location:

The Ohio State University Spanish and Portuguese Department, Hagerty Hall Room 298, 1775 College Rd S, Columbus, OH 43210

Project Description:

This mural was designed and produced for The Ohio State University’s Spanish and Portuguese Department office in Hagerty Hall on OSU’s campus in Columbus, Ohio. The Department hired Adam to create a custom mural and original work spanning the length of their campus office.

Adam designed this mural to feature elements of his Puerto Rican heritage and Taino ancestry. This mural is a partner piece to Portal of Perception No. 1: Freckled Dragon King of the 13 Eyes’ also found on OSU’s campus. Both murals are meant to encourage the viewer to be bold in who they are, no matter where they come from.

Adam is proud to partner with The Ohio State University’s Spanish and Portuguese Department to create this bold, vibrant piece of original artwork portrayed through a custom mural!
