Mural: Building the Giant Lincoln

Officially titled "People's Progression Toward Equality," painted by Jared Baker in 2006. The mural covers the entire wall of a four story building and depicts several dozen people assembling an (unfortunately) imaginary fifty-foot-tall statue of Lincoln made of blue metal.
