A tale of two riverfront murals, and more. Or less.


They’re so very telling. Both gaze out on rows of automobiles, but the similarities end there.

The graffiti wall actually encourages the viewer to think about artistic expression, while the other one is a vehicle (pun intended) for the “unofficial” civic anchor seal, which nonetheless now appears on every street sign and Gahan for Life mailer, and was shoved down a city’s collective throat by barely literate time servers who believe dogs playing poker constitute the acme of artistic expression.

But what else do you see in these photos … or not see?
