      Trevino is a renowned artist who focuses on Latin-American culture. His work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institute, as well as other prominent museums.

      The impressive tile mural, which is permanently displayed at the Santa Rosa Children's Hospital, is the only one of its kind in the United States. This tallest mural is made with tiles of 70 different tile colors, all imported from Germany. Each panel is cemented and put together like a jigsaw puzzle.

      It took 2,000 pieces of tile, and cost more than $1.5 million to erect. The impressive work-of-art stands 93 feet high, and 43 feet wide.
