I take great pride in this mural although I can only claim partial credit. Most of the credit goes to kids from the West Side Youth Farm and Jane Addams School for Democracy and college students from the University of St. Thomas Justice and Peace Studies Department. Together we decided on the theme, visual content, and formal elements of the mural. Beyond the final product, we found common ground and meaning in the process of creating public art that represents the diverse individuals that painted together.
Kids are proud to show family and friends their mural and the parts they designed and painted.
