The result is Reverberation, a 60-foot mural done in acrylic that depicts a series of images from the history of Niagara and of Brock University.After an introduction and welcoming remarks by university President Jack Lightstone and project manager Scott Roper, the artist spoke of his experience with creating the artwork, and took questions from the audience.The painting’s images range from War of 1812 scenes to visual references of the Allanburg Womens Institute, whose original petition to the Ontario government ultimately led to the creation of Brock University.Other works by Luca have appeared in numerous galleries around southern Ontario, as well as in institutions from Stony Brook University in New York to the University of Toronto Art Centre.
