Volunteers needed to paint new RamWalk street mural

RamWalk is getting a new look this fall and it needs your help.

Beginning July 26, volunteers are needed to help paint the street mural that welcomes fans to Canvas Stadium and celebrates Ram pride.

To complete the almost 4,000-square-foot mural over the course of four days, volunteers will work in two-hour shifts. No painting experience is necessary. Students from CSU’s Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Arts Advocacy and the Public Institute will be on site to show volunteers how to lay down the stencils and color-block the mural.

Celebrating ‘stalwart’ Rams


During home football games RamWalk serves as the stage for the cheer squad, marching band and football team as they parade through the street and into the stadium before kickoff. The rest of the year, it serves as a point of pride for CSU students and community members.

Based on the theme of “stalwart,” the new design is courtesy of Colorado State University art major Jocelyn Lapham.

Lapham’s design – selected among more than 20 entries during a contest this spring – represents the vast interests, dreams and talents of the CSU and Fort Collins communities. In addition to seeing her design publicly displayed, Lapham received a $5,000 College of Liberal Arts scholarship.

The redesign is a joint project between the Arts Management, Sport Management, Art & Art History, CSU Athletics and CSU Marketing & Communications departments.
