Ned has recently completed a series of panels for the lunchroom at West Boulevard Elementary School in Columbia, MO. The murals were funded by a grant that focused on promoting healthy eating in the school system. Comprised of ten panels, the mural explains the process of how food comes to our table from planting seeds in a garden to the harvest, shipping to the grocer, and preparation.

Also Ned has been busy repainting and touching up the murals in the pediatric wings of UMC Hospital and Clinics. After 8 years of traffic, little fingers and wreckless food cart drivers, they were in desperate need of repairs.
