Designed and installed by Green Bay area public school students as part of “A2O” (Artist Afternoons Outside) a Satellite Summer School course.

Although she died in 1954 at age 47, she was an internationally famous artist. The mural project began during the school year when West High School art teacher Candace Cole was asked to have one of her classes paint a mural in the community. Her Design I class researched Hispanic culture and came up with drawings that could be turned into a large-scale piece.
