Last month I was invited by my friend Alice Vogler to help create a three part mural about the environment with youngsters at (one of my all-time favorite places) the Boston Children’s Museum. The mural project is presented in partnership with FOCUS (Forest, Ocean Climate and US) a program of the US Forest Service and Seeds of Hope. The project aims to help families learn about the natural world around us and how to be environmentally friendly. The three part mural consisted of “Water” by yours truly, “Land” by Silvia Lopez Chavez, and “Air” by Eugene Finney.
