This multi-panel mural on 7th Place Mall in downtown St. Paul shows famous St. Paul landmarks. Ben Swenson and Teneka Graves both signed the murals, though it’s not clear if they were the only artists involved. It appears to be a project by St. Paul high school students. The mural is on the side of the Grace Building and was completed in 2001.

The mural also has seven plaques giving history on the various landmarks depicted in the mural: Grace Building, Cathedral of St. Paul, The Assumption Church, The St. Paul Hotel, Rice Park and Candyland at Seventh Place Palace/Orpheum.
