The Story Behind our New Mural in the DISCOVERY LAB

If you’ve been to DISCOVERY Children’s Museum recently, you’ve likely noticed a major upgrade in our DISCOVERY Lab on the second floor. The walls are now filled with one-of-a-kind artwork, thanks to our friends at Zappos.com!

Zappos donated the time of its resident artist, Miguel Hernandez, who spent weeks covering our walls with his incredible work. As you can see from the before and after photos, Miguel really helped bring the place to life:

Miguel is one of the most humble people you’ll ever meet, even though his work has been featured all over the downtown arts district and city of Las Vegas. While we couldn’t be more proud to display his artwork on our walls, he says giving back to a children’s museum was an honor for him.

Watch the video above (or click here) for a look at why DISCOVERY Children’s Museum holds such a special place in his heart.

Thank you again to Zappos for being such a wonderful partner. We know this community means as much to them as it does to us!
