This was the third belonging to the Mural Mentorship Program of the West End. This is the 'Kids in the Kommunity' Mural, done in 2004 by Karina Cardona-Claros. The Mural was completed alongside students from John M. King School as a huge collaborative effort. If you look closely you can see that younger children are represented along the left side of the Mural and age progressively to the right side. The Mural was painted by kindergarten to grade 8 students. To choose the pictures, Karina Cardona-Claros worked with the children in the school for 6 weeks designing pictures. After the 6 weeks the children voted for their favorite pictures, which were depicted on the Mural. The most popular picture was the baby with the big head (photo 2). Some of the scenes on the Mural represent the diversity the West End has as well activities some of the children partake in.
