The artist's signature was in the lower right of the mural. The letters WK inside a square of arrows facing inward created the expression, "WK Interact."

Fragments of words formed a banner that ran behind the head of Martin Luther King Jr. A dove could also be seen taking flight.

The entire mural in context with its surroundings. Note that cars traveling on either street would barely have time to spot this mural.
