I painted this parade of African animals in the hallway leading into the Exploration Room at the Children's Museum at Holyoke. I had worked with a team of young people for more than a year previous to this, designing and painting all four walls of this main meeting room with wildlife in their natural habitats from the four points of the compass. By the time that project was finished, many of the children had moved on to other actvities, so I painted the hallway myself.
