"I love people driving by," said Mauricio Ramirez. "I love people recognizing the work."

The mural "Frontline Heroes" was designed to recognize medical workers making a difference in the coronavirus fight. Ramirez hopes his work brings peace and gratitude.

The mural can be seen near the intersection of 6th and Lincoln near the Basilica of St. Josaphat.
