Last night’s “Saving the Murals & Lovin’ the Music” event was a big hit: good food, nostalgic music, cool decorations, and an entertaining and informative talk by Seth Mallios, chair of SDSU’s anthropology department, about the history of rock ‘n’ roll at SDSU. The winners of our writing contest were announced by former SDSU President Stephen Weber; congratulations to Cheryl Hinton, Donna Duarte, Edward Ortiz, Michael J. Anderson, and Dorothy Marshall! You can read excerpts from their stories online.

Below are some photos from last night’s event.
