There are many possibilities, I was thinking since your description
of the area you live in, one might be Norman Rockwell. Specifically
look at "The Golden Rule". It is a multi-cultural painting of all
ethnicity and they perhaps could do something similar. Also
interject symbols as other muralist did. Diego, Siquierez (sp) even
Tamayo, how cool to educate a perhaps less educated rural area which
will have so many similarities to the essence of what Mural painting
is all about. Educating and informing (newspaper like) those around
you who are perhaps illiterate or ignorant. you have a wonderful
opportunity. I also wanted to explain the symbols you could use, a
government official, a teacher, a student, a parent, a worker etc.
Prayer or seeking knowledge (not necessarily religious) which we all
have in common. An institution which we all use- the "Library". With
Rockwell, you may perhaps draw in the older population who would
remember "The Saturday Evening Post" covers.
