Eight students from the neighborhood worked as village-hired apprentices this summer under the direction of Chicago muralist Rahmaan Statik to create the murals, which feature portraits of key figures in Mexican history.

Saturday's ceremony begins at 12:30 p.m. with a dance performance by Sol Azteca Folkloric Ensemble, a Des Plaines 6th grade dance group. The apprentice artists will be honored at 1 p.m.
