-- A mural painted at the One Young World summit has been given to the university in recognition of its participation in the event, which drew 1,300 delegates from 182 countries to Pittsburgh for four days in October. Local artist Christina Todd painted the mural, a 4-foot-by-8-foot panel featuring the word "love" in 22 languages, during a One Young World session hosted by the MLK Project. The project involves Pittsburgh-area youths in community beautification projects. It unveiled a 3-story mural Downtown, facing the Boulevard of the Allies, at the same session where Todd painted the RMU mural. Vice Provost Derya Jacobs, who hosted a One Young World dinner in her home and who oversees RMU's international programs, accepted the mural with President Dell'Omo in December. University Editor Mark Houser took part in the planning of the One Young World summit and arranged for RMU to participate in the creation of the mural. Jacobs said she will recommend displaying the art in a prominent campus location.
