A college art professor from the Bronx was selected to design a painting for Facebook headquarters in Manhattan.

Dannielle Tegeder recently finished the three-month long project.

The Lehman College art professor was one of 20 artists selected to participate in Facebook's artist-in-residence program.

Tegeder created a mural for the lobby of the Facebook headquarters in Manhattan on Park Avenue South.

The piece, known as "Center of Machine-Life Transmissions," includes a collection of abstract shapes and narrow colorful lines.
