Located on an exterior wall of the University Theatre building facing a parking lot, the letters to spell S-A-C-R A-M-E-N-T-O were outlined and each artist painted his or her own unique vision within, the result being an iconic destination.

These artists were chosen to tell any story they wanted with their letter:

S β€“ SV Williams

N β€“ Norm Ayles
– Ursula X. Young
O β€“ Jose Di Gregorio
