American artist Millard Sheets was commissioned to create a work large enough to cover the entire side of the Theodore Hesburgh Library facing Notre Dame's football stadium. 134'x Iconic 64'
The mural's image of Jesus, visible from Notre Dame's football stadium, has arms raised in the same fashion as a referee signifying a touchdown. From this similarity came the mural's nickname, "Touchdown Jesus".
