How to Spend Your Spring Break in Shawnee, OK
Zip! Bang! OBU! Mural
2230 N Kickapoo Ave, Shawnee, OK 74804
This mural graces the north side of Oklahoma Baptist University's Art Annex and celebrates iconography of its campus featuring the famous Raley Chapel and Shawnee Hall along with the mascot Bison, with artwork primarily in the university's colors of green and gold. The banner being flown across the sky reads "Zip! Bang! OBU!", a nod to OBU's famous "Ka-Rip" spirit cheer that originated in the 1920s and it still cheered by students today.
It was completed in June 2022 by current and former students of the OBU art program and overseen by current Professor of Art Corey Fuller.
Original artwork by OBU alumni Vanessa Myers
