“Emotions”, a colorful 6-foot tall by 45-foot long mural, created by YVCC art instructor Bob Fisher and his students, lines the length of the main hall of Palmer Martin Hall. The public art included in Palmer Martin Hall is a salute to the building’s use as a language and visual arts teaching facility.

Unique to Palmer Martin Hall is the artwork of Northwest artist Kay Kirkpatrick. Entitled “Storylines,” Kirkpatrick embedded the words of YVCC students in her work as a part of her art, which flows throughout the building.
