The Michael J. Drake Building, home to the OSIRIS-REx mission, is the canvas for a colorful new mural celebrating that mission. The beautiful work of art is located on the building's west wall, just around the corner from the mural that commemorates the PHOENIX Mars Lander mission. The OSIRIS-REx mural was created by University of Arizona art students as part of a mural painting class taught by Professor Alfred Quiroz of the School of Art.
