This work of art is a gift from the Erasmus Alumni Association EAV on the occasion of the University's 85th anniversary in 1998. All graduates are invited to sign the wall as a symbolic leave-taking from the alma mater that nevertheless signifies a life-long link. The wall's designer, Mrs. Annemoon Geurts, applied a screen print design on the glass panels showing 140 different portraits of citizens of Rotterdam wearing Erasmus' famous cap.
The Erasmus cap was chosen as symbol of wisdom gained upon graduation. Coloured sections in the Erasmus autograph wall represent the colours of the seven faculties that made up the university in 1998. The autograph wall is located on Woudestein campus in the A-building near the Examination Rooms, close to the Auditorium and the Senate Room.
