New physics mural is 'all relative'

   mural   A new mural depicting Galileo and Albert Einstein was unveiled March 1 for faculty and students in the lobby/lounge area of the physics department on the fist floor of Barton Hall.
    Artist Henry Martin (pictured, at left) painted the 37.5-foot by 22.5-foot mural, which was commissioned by department chair C.J. “Jeff” Martoff (right).
   The scenes on the mural highlight the links between Galileo and Einstein through their theories and research into motion, relativity and time.
   “It was a very interesting project,” Martin said. “Not having a scientific background, it was both instructive and artistic.”
Martoff said the lobby/lounge area is heavily used by students from varied backgrounds who attend classes in the large Barton Hall lecture rooms. He thought the mural would inspire physics and non-physics students alike and help show why physics is interesting.

This Week in Temple History
March 27, 1986

   The Temple Times reported the unveiling of a renovated Office of Undergraduate Admissions on the first floor of Conwell Hall. In the new space, students could be admitted, receive financial aid and enroll for courses instead of traveling to scattered offices of Main Campus to find the various support services they need.
    A major feature of the renovation was the “Presentation Room,” which contained a 45-inch TV screen for showing videotapes and slide presentations about the University. The room was built to hold at least 30 people.
