The story of Ed Lantzer and the story he tells with his mosaic murals is truly something that needs to be seen to be believed.

When you walk into the gallery you are overwhelmed by the sense of dedication that went into each of the giant murals. The story the murals portray and the story of Ed Lantzer, the mural's creator, are two stories that must be seen and heard.
