“Journey”, By Meg Saligman in 1999 

I love this one.  I get to see it every day on my way to school. 

“Painted on the side of a Children’s Crisis Center at 18th and Callowhill Streets, Journey‘s panels, which move outward from the center, trace a child’s progress back to emotional health.” (Golden, Rice & Kinney p116)
