Mural Updates

Jenie-Gao-at-UECAt the Cross Block Party on 8/20, artist Jenie Gao presented several variations of her design for the mural that will eventually grace the backs of Cross Church and Shalom High School.  As she spoke with guests, she asked their opinions -- which design they liked best, and what each person liked about them.  Below are the images she presented.
