The restored Land-Grant Foyer of Old Main at Penn State, featuring the north wall of the Land-Grant Frescoes. On this wall, completed in 1940, Henry Varnum Poor symbolically portrayed the promise of higher education and the fledgling college's activities in agriculture, mineral industries, and engineering, centering around likenesses of Abraham Lincoln and a young student planting a tree.
