Description

A close-up shot of a children's drawing mounted to the side of a cardboard box, used as a display surface in the exhibit; only the top left corner of the artwork is visible. It appears to be drawn in crayon, and depicts two brown buildings labelled "Shoe Store" and "5 and 10." Red crayon scribblings cover the front of the buildings and the sky is a messy scrawl of gray, depicting the fires that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Child's handwriting that has been corrected (presumably by a teacher or other adult), reads "This is 14th Street. This street looks terrible.
