The students who painted the mural at a temporary wall in Horton Plaza were able to see their completed creation for the first time on Wednesday.

Students from Monarch School, which serves kids whose families have been impacted by homelessness, helped design and create the mural that covers major construction in downtown San Diego.

The mural features their favorite places in San Diego, from Balboa Park to Coronado. The children painted the mural at school, and then each piece was transported to Horton Plaza to cover the wall.

Launch Live Art and Frazee Paint helped the young artists put their dreams into a reality by guiding the painting process and paint donation.

Once the construction project at Horton Plaza is done, the panels will be taken down and auctioned off, with the money going to the Monarch School.
