Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Martin Luther King Jr. Street

Multicultural Diversity Mural Exhibition

This MLK day I thought I'd take the time out to stroll down MLK street with my son. I wanted to make a point of documenting all these  multicultural murals I pass by everyday on the bus, but had never taken the time to examine up close.

Looks like a great way to spend a sunny day. People's Park is fun, has the perfect size hills to roll down when you are in preschool.

Nice photos, but I see nearly no human life.

Cool!

there was human life. Just not the kind you see in a condo design sketch.

Do you really need to be in pre school to roll down a hill? I think I can do it. Hill rolling contest anyone? Easier than bocce.

Why does the mural of the four black leaders have a urinal in the middle? That's just wrong.

It's a water fountain.


Hey, does anybody know how the turnout to celebrate Robert Downey Junior day was?

man all you guys are wrong.
it's a garden flower stand thingy.

by L.S.Erhardt on 1/19/2010 @ 4:22pm
there are no flowers in January.

by NineInchNachos on 1/19/2010 @ 4:44pm
which if you look would explain the absence of flowers in the flower box

It's the perfect size to roll down, if you are in preschool. I did not mean to in any way imply that one cannot roll down hills as one gets older.

Plenty of flowers in January, just gotta look! Try the winter garden at the Washington Park arboretum. Delicious!
