Behind the Scenes of the Hartman Center’s Handprint Mural

hc 2015The Hartman Center’s LIVE TO DREAM Summer Reading Program kicked off its first session in June of 2015. Local schoolchildren boarded buses and arrived on campus just like during the school year. But they were in for the surprise of their lives one Friday morning when basketball legend and Marquette alumnus Dwyane Wade stopped by to visit.

In addition to playing games, enjoying a picnic, and listening to a read aloud with Mr. Wade, the children, with some help from the Office of Marketing and Communications, created a mural showcasing their handprints. There were 60 children, 12 smocks, 15 teachers, one large plastic dropcloth, rollers and a whole lot of paint — plus (pun intended!) a lot of helping hands.

Today the finished product hangs on the wall of the Hartman Center as a thank you for the generosity of someone who’s given a lot. And in this small corner of his alma mater, children compare their hands to those of Mr. Wade in wonder.
