The mural is being painted on fiberglass reinforced concrete panels. The panels arrived in May 2010 and were placed in a warehouse on the campus of the University of South Alabama. Each quadrant is made of two panels which are joined together along a central seam. The mural will be painted, the panels separated, installed in the bell tower, and I will touch-up the seam on site. Because of the substrate and the exterior location, I am using Keim mineral paint. It's longevity is estimated at 80 - 100 years with direct exposure.
