        The beautiful brown girl in the middle is Jillian McIntosh-Rodriguez, daughter of Luke and Karen McIntosh. I was 6 years old :-).

        Hi, Jillian. Thanks for identifying yourself. Can you confirm, then, that the pic was taken 1987 as opposed to 1976?

    I don’t think this is the right year… I see myself and I wasn’t born until 1983, haha! Cool picture.

      Hi, Rachel. Any chance you were just ahead of your time? 🙂 How old do you think you’d have been in the photo? I wonder if it’s been mislabelled and is actually from the Sculpture Garden opening in 1987. Does that sound right?
