In July 1997, the Academy's Class of 1976 commissioned regional artist Michael Esch to paint an eight panel canvas representing the life of an Academy cadet over four years. Each canvas is a 40-foot by 40- foot panel, painted in acrylic enamel that portrays the realism of Academy life since 1976. The panels hang on the north wall of the Field House indoor track and are a gift to the Athletic Department.
