Our Multicultural Mural

Artist: Carrington Haley

Welcome to the Draper Multicultural and Unity Mural. This mural is a gift to the Draper community from Channing Hall International Baccalaureate Charter School. This mural represents unity and diversity to all that pass. We honor those who come before us and celebrate the new rich and vibrant cultures that now make up our beautiful city.

Channing Hall has seen a much welcomed increase in international families enrolling in our school in recent years due to the changing demographics of the Draper area and Channing Hall’s global-perspective-based International Baccalaureate program. We feel a strong desire to create a place of joy and belonging not just for our students and families but for our community.

This mural was created by a collaboration of 8th Grade students, IKEA of Draper, the City of Draper and our fabulous artist Carrington Haley.
