CRANSTON â€“ The walls of the visitorâ€™s room at the J. Moran Medium Security facility are covered with colorful murals of Peter Pan, Captain Hook and Spiderman, all painstakingly hand-painted to make the room a little less dreary for the children and families who come to visit the prisonâ€™s 1,100 inmates.
