Many of the previous works, including this mural, reference the history of Pilsen, the neighborhood where the murals have been painted. This particular piece displays an eclectic selection of imagery spanning a lengthy old wall.

Canadian artists, Other and Labrona, collaborates in giving the Haverford College in Philadelphia a vibrant new mural on the exterior of one of its buildings. Labrona spoke on this particular trip saying, “It is very important to disseminate murals all across the world. Having never painted in Pennsylvania before, it is a new place to explore and work from. There is no particular significance to the mural. It is more of a freestyle, working within the shape of the wall formed what was painted."
