Student dancers, dressed in traditional Mexican Charro outfits, perform at mural dedication. The mural titled "Aztec Princess" was painted in 1990 by artist Eloy Torres on the side of a building at the energy plant owned by Sunlaw Cogeneration Partners I and can be seen in the background. It is a portrait of the artist's girlfriend; her pose was intended to suggest both the Statue of Liberty and the Virgin of Guadalupe.
