Mural Room

The mural was created by Artist Ali Pearson, a well-known muralist throughout the US and spouse of Martin Murphy descendant Bill Stockton. It took her four and a half months to paint the mural and one week to hang it on the specially created curved wall. It is painted on canvas and hung as wallpaper in the room with one seam only. It depicts the timeline of the Sunnyvale region from the Ohlones to the late 1950’s.
