Students from the City Academy high school painted this mural on the east wall of the Size Matters Fashion Shop in St. Paul in 2007. The mural was part of a neighborhood revitalization project and gave the students an opportunity to research the history of the community:

The mural represents the interconnectivity of the many cultures found on Saint Paul’s East Side—Native American, Hispanic, Scandinavian, Hmong, Italian and African American. Each culture is represented in a series of circles that surround a central pyramid. A hand reaches out from each circle towards the pyramid symbolizing the potential for collaboration.
