The Moderate Voices for Progress (MVP) mural, "Freedom" describes the situation where two people, an Israeli and a Palestinian, are walking away from the darkness of fear, violence, hopelessness towards the sun representing hope and freedom.
The sun casts its rays onto these two people, bringing light to them, leaving their shadows behind. The olive tree welcomes these individuals, its roots bursting the soil, indicating the strong ties both groups have with the land.
