I just looked through the Art and Soul issue of edutopia. As an artist I was vary interested in the restoration of the Chicago murals and enjoyed the article very much. But-I have a question. It looks to me that the Rudolph Weisenborn mural on page 31 is upside down. If it is I find that most disturbing. It says to me that who ever placed this image didn't even look at it.
