The mural covers 8 sections of a main hallway, spanning over 80 feet of the Rhode Island Training School facility, which houses over 100 student inmates. Geisser and Seeger worked directly with student inmates over two years, with the help of DCYF art teacher Jim Anderson, to fabricate the individual tiles that comprise the mural. Student inmates have created tiles that are decorative, as well as narrative, responding to the theme and title of the mural "Where have we come from? Who are we? Where are we going?"
