On January 28, the U.S. Embassy opened its doors to more than 100 talented young people to paint the murals in front of the Embassy. Dozens of students from Thai secondary schools, alumni from the Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program, and Thai musical performer Matthew Chittivaranon showed off their artistic talents and great ideas by painting 14 murals. The colorful murals tell a story about the friendship between Thailand and the United States. Ambassador Kenney also joined in the fun.
