The mural illustrates relationships between memory, nature and place.  The image of the boy at a Portage Park drinking fountain is based on a photograph by G. B. Seehausen, by permission of the Chicago Historical Society.  The architectural fragments are inspired by buildings around “Six Corners”, an early and lasting economic center in this area.
