|Artist Barbara Gomez cuts the ribbon in dedication of the
new Williams Campus mural, Dreams Take Flight. The
ribbon is held by many who helped paint the mural.
Led by Cesar Becerra, student services specialist at Chandler-Gilbert Community College, the mural brought together students, faculty and staff as they designed and painted the mural during the spring 2013 semester.
The mural represents the past to the present and is rich with imagery of the former Williams Air Force Base where the campus is now housed as well as the native people and animals of the region and transforms them into icons of CGCC's current programs and student success. Students selected the name Dreams Take Flight for the mural to reflect the power of education as well as a nod to the campus history and location near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
