Looking for More Mural Photos

I’ve received a couple great shots of students and their families standing with the installed mural.  I would love to receive more picture with students and the finished mural so they can be included in the project documentation we’re working on.  Please upload your photos to our Zervas Mural Google Photo Album. 
Or email them to me at maggie@maggieschmidt.com
Thanks!
