Multicultural Diversity Mural ExhibitionThis 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.

[anyone know the story behind this one? recognize any of these folks? please share!]
[Peoples Park, Tacoma WA]
GO OUT AND Enjoy this beautiful day!

|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.|

|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.

|there are no flowers in January.|

|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!|

He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
