Commissioned by Sewell of Plano, this Texas-themed mural is the first mural at Children's Medical Center–Legacy Campus. Children literally drive themselves down the hallway to surgery in a mini Mini Cooper, also compliments of Sewell.

This mural features all the standard Texas fare: oil derricks, bluebonnets, horny toad, bunnies, old western town, dog, squirrels, turtle, frog, ducks, longhorn, birds, windmill, farm house, Texas landmark sign, and more. It even has a Mini Cooper touring the country-side!

“These cars totally take their minds off where they are going, and the hospital has been able to minimize the pre-sedation. The mural is an essential add-on to this; it is no different than artwork we have in the rest of the hospital.”
–Pete Kline, president of the Children’s Medical Center Foundation

The mural is 11,074 square feet and took two people over 105 hours to paint.
