Troll enlisted the help of several students and volunteers who helped paint his projected design onto the wall.

Ketchikan artist, naturalist, author and musician Ray Troll (above) was on hand at the University of Alaska Southeast's Auke Lake campus last week working on a new mural. The mural depicts salmon making their way upstream along a staircase in the Egan building, the newest building at UAS. Troll said he sees empty spaces like this and feels the need to fill them.
