The mural features about 32 drawings submitted by students, each depicting something seen in University Park such as trees, azaleas, a rollerblading student and a Route 1 road sign. The project was spearheaded by art teacher Liza Linder and members of the community helped the students and teachers create and mount the decorative mosaic.
