CSULB Illustration Professor Robin Richesson’s murals in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”

Posted on October 30, 2013 by School of Art

CSULB Professor of Illustration and Animation, Robin Richesson will have her “work” shown for another season on the NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation.” Beginning its sixth season this fall, Prof. Richesson provided the drawings that became the “Murals of Pioneer Hall”, the mythical center for the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana where the comedy resides. “Every town has its own unique history, and Pawnee’s is full of both pride and shame. Mostly shame…The large murals that line the walls of Pioneer Hall depict some of the most famous and interesting moments in our town’s past, and are well worth checking out as works or art — even if they are also by any standard horrifying at a level it is difficult to comprehend.” To see the murals in all their glory, please click here.
