The participating young artists decided that the mural should focus on the life  under water, most specifically, life in the deep sea.

The mural was painted on an existing interior wall at Booker T. Washington Community Center.  There are mermaids and hidden treasures: there are octopi, fish and sea creatures, dolphins and even a sank ship.

The young artists from the Boys and Girls Club, in collaboration with MBU students and Walls of Hope artists created a marvelous rendering of under and above water.
