Description
Colour photograph of the Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty of Music processional banner. The banner is used during convocation ceremonies.
Notes
The banner for the Faculty of Music was designed and executed by Ralph Beney, who taught Design for Textile at Laurier. The pinks and reds in the banner reflect the academic colour of music, which was originally scarlet but changed to pink several centuries ago. The bells are universal musical instruments. As rhythm is an essential characteristic of music, the design is rhythmic, lively.
