    Thank you for posting these. The triptych of murals Park’s are moving and beautiful, under valued, and mostly unknown. I worked at the school for 20 years and tried to get community support to help protect these murals, which are painted on plaster walls. It isn’t listed in very many places, and, when it is, often the artist’s name is incorrect.
