Students 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. The building can be seen in the background, but the mural is just out of view. The mural is a portrait of the artist's girlfriend; her pose was intended to suggest both the Statue of Liberty and the Virgin of Guadalupe.
