This mural is entitled “David” and depicts an 11-year-old boy who is a student at the Isauro Arancibia Education Center, a school especially for children living in poverty.  The school is being threatened with demolition to make room for a new bus route, and Rodriguez-Gerada created the artwork to draw attention to the work Isauro Arancibia Education Center does for the local community.
