Framable Mural Print
11 x 14″ horizontal poster, with the purchase of the Founders’ Day mural poster $10 will be donated to the Tri Delta Foundation.
Created in 1998 by award-winning Texas artist Parks Lowe, “Founders’ Day” celebrates Tri Delta’s founding at Boston University in November 1888.
Integrated into the tranquil New England scene are Tri Delta’s beloved symbols: the pine tree in the background; the pansies in the foreground; the ocean on the horizon; and the pearls worn by the women.
The women, of course, represent our Founders. The two standing figures represent our founding sisters, Sarah Ida Shaw and Eleanor Dorcas Pond; while the seated figures represent Tri Delta’s first two initiates, Isabel Morgan Breed and Florence Isabelle Stewart. The autumn foliage further sets the scene, as does the church steeple – a nod to Park Street Church, where Sarah and Eleanor pledged eternal loyalty and fealty to Tri Delta.
It is the pleasure of the Tri Delta Foundation to share this artwork with you in return for your generous support of our sisterhood, and in honor of the brave, bold and kind women who created Tri Delta – something distinctive, something dynamic and something that is worthy of the best in you.
