Louisville, KY (May 20, 2013) - An entry into the The Kids’ Guernica International Children’s Peace Mural Project is now on display on the main concourse of the KFC Yum! Center. The mural was done by Western Kentucky University Student, Meg McDonald, along with help from sixty fifth-graders from Hartstern Elementary, as part of an honors thesis project for McDonald’s program at WKU. Mcdonald received several grants for the project, including grants from the Kentucky Fund for the Arts and the Faculty-Undergraduate Student Engagement Grant.

The mural will be on display at the arena for a short period of time before moving to different locations in the city. The peace mural project came in conjunction with another peace-inspiring event at the venue, His Holiness, the Dalai Lama’s visit for a public talk and teaching on “Engaging Compassion.”
