"Missing Pieces Can Be Found" Mural Dedication and Harwood Park Reopening Celebration- Baltimore, MD, Oct. 5, 2013
The mural entitled “Missing Pieces Can Be Found” was designed by 7th grader, Ellisa Yates,
with her vision that it will inspire her generation to believe that dreams do come true. The
work she created helped to inspire youth in foster care, but the design also represents how
the community is working together to put Harwood Park back together…..piece by piece.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake issued a Certificate of Recognition to Ellisa and all of the
students who helped rebuild Harwood Park.
Mural Location: Harwood Park, 416 E. 27th Street, Baltimore, MD 21216
