NMSU is home

In fall 2021, NMSU resumed in-person classes and hosted athletic home events with fans in the stands for fall sports such as football, soccer and volleyball. One of Ken Barrick’s murals, “NMSU is Home” in Corbett Center, is the perfect illustration to celebrate the return to campus. Barrick was an influential artist on campus for more than 30 years. He joined the NMSU art department faculty in 1949. Barrick, who passed away in 2007, painted more than a dozen legendary murals on campus including inside Hadley Hall.
