Description / Interpretation: 

Children romping. Located in sight of the Children's Museum.The girls featured in the mural are named Misty, Yuriko, and Jennifer. "Margaret Garcia worked on the oldest girl, Misty, who is African-American.  John Valadez worked on the blond girl in the purple and white striped dress, Jana, who may be the next figure to be revealed.  And I believe Eloy worked on the little basketball player, Gabriel.  It's hard to remember because we were also moving around on the different figures at the same time, depending on who showed up that day."
