Any way you look at it, the main mural is a sight to behold. When you come to the Passing Through dedication on Friday October 29 at 4:00 pm on Kelly Drive, be sure to walk the path by the natural stone tunnel for this made-to-order view of the third third of the mural. We can't promise the pink sky, but you just don't know.
