One of a Kind

The Musical Score

"Two things particularly struck me on reading the artist’s explanation of the mural: firstly, the use of different hues of two colors, and secondly, the concept of providing space for contemplation and introspection.


I chose to work with a musical palette of two wind instruments, flute and oboe, with electronically-generated sounds as a backdrop. The simple woodwind themes are gentle and lyrical, with what I hear as star-like shimmering in the background."

Lead Designers

One of a Kind is a reimagination of our Texas State University star conceived by artist Miranda Terry, a 2019 studio art graduate. She and artist Onix Rodriguez, a 2018 studio art graduate, led the mural installation.

The mural's diamond patterns symbolize how the many facets of our university — students, faculty, staff and alumni — come together to form a shining symbol of our pride and strength. The vibrant hues that blend to create our signature colors also reflect how our inclusive spirit and bold creativity enrich the Texas State legacy.
