Oakhurst Mural at Cook Children's Hospital!

Credit to our neighbors Jason and Felicia Gehrig for sharing the info and photos below:

Cook Children's Hospital has a new mural featuring houses from Marigold Ave in Oakhurst!  The mural is located in the hallway leading to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), and its purpose is to display images of joy and playfulness as the child patients are being wheeled into surgery.  Check out the photos below!

According to the Gehrigs, the hospital photographer—Gordon Trice—chose Oakhurst because he grew up in this area and always loved the neighborhood.  In fact, his first 'car date' was with a girl who lived in the Gehrigs' house (the cedar shake siding house pictured in the mural).  Mr. Trice also graduated from Amon Carter-Riverside High School.
