Up Close with the Mural in Wheaton Triangle

Have you seen the enormous, artistic mural in Wheaton Triangle? Who painted it? When? You may be surprised that it was created by students from Evergreen School, a Montessori school in Wheaton.

I was eating a delicious pork banh mi sandwich at  with my son and daughter today when I noticed the Evergreen School mural across the parking lot.   The mural was created in 2009 by Evergreen students.  Here are a few of my photos; I focussed on close ups, but felt obliged to include one picture that gives perspective on the mural’s massive size.  It must be at least 30 feet long and 20 feet tall.  Our school is so proud to be responsible for such an awesome Wheaton landmark! Do you remember Wheaton before the mural?  Please share your reminiscence.

John DeMarchi is the Head of School at Evergreen School, a Montessori School for children age 2 to 9 years old.  Evergreen was founded in 1964 and is located at Plyers Mill Road and Georgia Avenue.  Learn more about the school and their summer camp at www.evergreenschool.com

I'm confused, you're asking if people remember what Wheaton was like before the mural was put up in 2009?

I am interested in knowing what was on the building before the mural? Was their anything painted there before?
