A mural, created by students from Oak Park and Austin who participated in a summer apprenticeship program with the Oak Park Area Arts Council, was installed last weekend. 

According to an article published in Austin Weekly News earlier this month, "On the left side of the mural, a community elder is depicted in silhouette and wearing a head of fall leaves, to indicate his late season of life. An analog clock is frozen in time above him. On the right side of the generational divide, a digital clock and a cell phone signals a present marked by youthfulness and technology. The hands of a father are stretched toward the outstretched hands of a child to indicate a mutual grasping for change."
