Vanden High School advance art students are leaving a lasting legacy to their campus.
More than 3,000 hours have been logged over the past six weeks to create a Unity in Diversity mural on the side of the arts and music building, visible from Markley Road. It measures 8 feet tall and 50 feet long.
Instructor David Draim was approached with the idea by fellow teacher Julie Rossi, who had seen other high school murals.
“I knew how much work (it would be),” Draim said.
