The mosaic, first begun in June, 2012, is a joint project between Helper City, The 2012 Helper Arts and Music Festival and the museum.

This project is designated as a "Random Act of Art" by the Utah Division of Arts and Museums

A plaque will be affixed permanently beside the wall with the help of Derek Way of Wayco
