Peoria Unified Students Design Murals for City Project

Late in the Fall of 2019 designs were submitted by 4th and 5th grade students from four Peoria Unified schools located near the Loop 303 Bridge in Peoria for a special renovation project. Students from Sunset Heights, Lake Pleasant, Vistancia and Zuni Hills submitted hundreds of different pieces of artwork and ultimately 12 student’s artworks where chosen.


Over the last few months, local artist Ms. Kris Kollasch has been working to transform the student designs and the tiles that students at the four school created. Last week, installation teams began the work to install the 12 mosaic panels as well as a plaque with the participating student’s names on the new 303 bridge.


It has been an exciting journey to see the student drawings transformed into large scale artworks that will be now on display for the community to admire for many years into the future.
