Children with the Minneapolis-based nonprofit Mentoring Peace through Art worked together to create a mural as part of Mayor Betsy Hodges' 10-day "One Minneapolis" tour.

Each day of the tour features a different theme, with Thursday’s focus set on kids.

Mentoring Peace through Art murals replace gang graffiti with art created by teens and kids who both lead the projects and participate in painting.
