    Funds have been promised,work has been arranged, andthough Princeton City Schoolshas not yet OKd the preservationof historic murals, advocates forthe project remain optimistic.

    While only a fraction of themoney has been gathered, orga-nizer Kelli Reisen said an anony-mous donor has promised to cov-er the remaining cost of the moveand preservation of seven mosa-ics from the old high school to thenew campus across the street.

    Princetons Board of Educa-tion had told advocates workingto save the murals that they hadto raise the funds and arrange forthe removal, but that the boarddidnt oppose the project.

    Reisen, a 1982 graduate ofPrinceton High School, and New-

    port Development Services Di-rector Greg Tulley, also a 1982grad, addressed the PrincetonBoard of Education at a specialmeeting March 19.

    The cost of removing and pre-serving the panels had been re-duced from an original estimate

    of $225,000 to $125,000, yet only$14,000 had been raised. Theanonymous donor would coverthe remaining costs. Reisen saidthe Evans Group, which is al-ready under contract withPrinceton, has agreed to take onthe project.

    There will be no financial li-ability for the school, Reisensaid.

    Still, the group working tosave the murals doesnt have agreen light to proceed.

    School Board member SteveMoore said the details wouldhave to be discussed among rep-resentatives of Turner Construc-tion, Princeton administratorsand board members before theyagree to the removal and preser-vation of the murals.

    Moore cited schedule and costconcerns as the delay, althoughadvocates of the murals havemet the financial and logistic cri-teria that the board had set.

    After hearing Reisens andTulleys report, Moore said thishas a chance to work out, thoughhe repeated several times that hehad concerns about the preserva-tion.

    We have to understand theimplications, he said, address-ing the advocates. You think youhave the answers, but we haventmet with these people yet,Moore said, referring to Turnerand Evans.

    Tulley was not phased.Whatever we have to do to

    move forward, he said. Welldo.

    Kevin Richard, a senior pro-ject manager for Turner Con-struction, set a meeting forMarch 25.

    The panels, designed by Cin-cinnati painter and muralist CarlZimmerman in 1958, reflectShakespeare's "Seven Ages ofMan."

    Each of the seven panels de-picts one of the ages: infant,schoolboy, lover, soldier, justice,old age and incapacity.

    Funds promised, yet advocates await OK on muralsKelly


    Princeton High Schools wall murals, representing Shakespeares SevenAges of Man, will be destroyed unless the school board allows advocatesto have them preserved and moved to the new campus, across ChesterRoad.

    Where did you travel?I traveled to various locations around

    Cincinnati, including the Cincinnati Zooand Botanical Gardens, Ault Park, FrenchPark, Sharon Woods, Salt Fork State Park,East Fork State Park, Ewing and Medary-ville in Indiana, and Lucas/Ottawa countiesin Ohio.

    Why did you travel there?I traveled to those locations to get shots

    of nature images. Sometimes to specific lo-cations for specific species, such as Meda-ryville for Sandhill Cranes.

    What was the highlight of your trip?The highlight of each trip was captur-

    ing good nature images. In some cases, cap-turing images of endangered species.

    What would you like viewers to takeaway from your photo presentation?

    I would like viewers of my images totake home a greater appreciation for na-ture, and some of the complexities of cap-turing nature images.
