Graham Rust, the internationally renowned mural painter, will discuss three of his mural projects—two houses in England, and one in Palm Beach. The first project—the staircase at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire—was conceived in 1968 while Rust was Artist-in-Residence at Woodberry Forest School in Virginia. This led directly to the mural at Ivor House in Palm Beach in 2018—50 years later.
