Long Description:
Museum Without Walls is one of K's favorites. Must be flash backs from years ago when he worked as an apple picker and later planted trees and installed a new irrigation system. I remember well the first day I was picking apples; I fell off the box I used to stand on and broke my leg. Lucky me, no more apple picking for that season.
Museum Without Walls

This is a very unique mural because it uses a technique called Trompe L’oeil or Trick of the Eye. The mural shows a little boy looking through a broken wall into a museum, that has a mural on display. The inner mural is one of women working in an orchard during WWI. The mural is so realistic that parking stops were painted right in to keep cars from hitting the wall
