Murals of Anaheim history at GardenWalk

Reader ColonyRabble writes, "This weekend at the GardenWalk, [321 W. Katella Ave., in Anaheim] the public is invited for a family-friendly event, as we unveil 'Anaheim in Motion: History Comes to Life.' Anaheim Planning intern Janet Lee, volunteering her time no less, has created a miracle in coordinating 20 artists, working with hundreds of kids, to produce artistic murals of Anaheim history and culture. Sponsored by the Anaheim Historical Society, Assistance League, YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, and the GardenWalk, with assistance from Disney, the murals are amazing, and will be displayed as public art for roughly the next year, in space generously donated by the GardenWalk. The Unveiling event is tomorrow (Saturday) beginning at 6 pm, with magicians, music, and the best view of the Disneyland fireworks outside of 'the Park.'
"The public is invited, and the event is FREE and kid friendly, in the 2nd floor Gala Garden. Murals are framed throughout the center, with most of them in the Gala Garden and upper floor area. "

But you need to go see them in person too. They are supposed to be there for at least 6 months I think I heard.
