East End Community Services is so pleased to have the wonderful glass mosaic mural completed by K-12 Gallery artists and the community. Designed based upon student illustrations at Ruksin PreK-8 School, ,the mural is a monument to the power of the neighborhood to grow in beauty and hope in recent years. We cannot thank enough K-12 Gallery and all the wonderful artists and volunteers who are transforming our neighborhood.

We were pleased to have many organizations participate in this wonderful day including New Hope Church, Wesley Center, Twin Towers Block Leaders, Twin Towers Neighborhood Association, the Glen and the Mentoring Collaborative as well as the AmeriCorps members.
