About the Work

Art Across the Americas partnered with Cornerstone Information Systems to create a mural on the east side of Cornerstone's building that faces the B-Line Trail. The mural is the result of the exchange program, Art Across the Americas, that began in the summer of 2008 when 12 students from Bloomington traveled to San Juan la Laguna, Guatemala to paint a mural on the side of a textile shop in the city. Students from Guatemala traveled to Bloomington in June and July, 2009 to paint the mural along the B-Line Trail.

The mural is titled "Worlds Apart, Always Connected"
