Deteriorating mosaic to be removed

MU officials and artist Paul Jackson have reached an agreement to remove the Tiger Spot mosaic, a circular work measuring 30 feet in diameter on Lowry Mall. 

Jackson, MFA ’92, completed Tiger Spot in 2001, but the work has since deteriorated. 

In 2007, the work was covered. Litigation arose over the mosaic’s removal. 

The case recently settled out of court, with MU agreeing to pay Jackson $125,000 to relinquish his rights to Tiger Spot and allow the university to remove it.

The Art and Artifacts Committee will assess the future of the site.
