The mural wall is 13 ft. high and 22 ft. wide on a prominent curved wall. Mural artist David Fichter in collaboration with art teacher Rebecca Fellows worked with art students from grades 6-8 to conceptualize, draw, and paint a large scale permanent mural based primarily on the natural history of Rumney Marsh, namesake of the school and historical name for Revere and environs. Students, teachers, and artists developed the theme of the mural during brainstorming sessions at the beginning of the residency. The theme focused on the rich natural history of the local wildlife and habitats, as well as the history of Revere as an immigrant working class community, with the famous Revere Beach amusement parks.
