Artist and Director of Operations Reji White works on a section of the mural in the front entryway of the Missouri Chidren's Museum on Tuesday. He sees the murals as a chance to show the children a wide variety of animals, as well as another opportunity to paint. "None of this was how I planned it, but it really turned out better than we expected," he said. Reji emphasized his love for working at the museum, being able to see kids shine and have a good time. "I want to do this for my whole life."
