Catalogue Description:
This ceiling mural of five panels depicts five young black men in various poses floating though a blue sky scattered with cumulus clouds. Large, ornate doily-like halos surround the head and most of the body of three of the figures. Only the legs of one figure are visible; a figure in the far distance has a doily-like halo encircling his head. The paintings are numbered a-e starting with the top panel in the thumbnail and moving down to the bottom panel.
