The Jefferson Houston School Mural is a 50′ long exterior, 14 (4′ x 8′) MDO panel piece. Commissioned in January 2007 by Alexandria City Public Schools to help encourage the kindergarten – 5th grade school children to learn some of their SOL subjects through exposure to art. The mural can be viewed on the playground. Planting boxes that contain the flowers in the mural are planted in front. The mural was completed in July 2007 and was installed in November 2007.
