My original painting “Cliffs of Zion” was presented to donors Dr. Denis and Diane Lyman at a special reception at Dixie State University yesterday. I was present to unveil the painting and talk about my work during the event. The painting was purchased by the University as a gift to honor the Lymans’ for their $1 million contribution towards a new geology program and regional center, which will be housed on the top floor of the $58 million Science, Engineering & Technology building set to break ground in the fall. It will be called the Denis and Diane Lyman Geology program. The couple has
enjoyed taking geology classes and learning about Zion National Park and other local geologic wonders and are anxious to see the geology program expand.
