Building 329 (Theater)

While Alan Houser was at Intermountain, he painted several murals in the theatre. These images showcased several motifs of western art as well as landscapes that were familiar to many of the Navajo students, including the Mittens, which stand in Monument Valley. The importance of these murals in a Native residential school was unprecedented in similar schools of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These images featured dominant Native figures in a positive way.
The theatre building was torn down shortly after the school closed.
