With the seismic retrofitting apparently finished, any news on the mural project that was proposed for the underpass? It's a wonderful idea.
Congrats on blog!

Ed,

The mural project has been put on hold. The DPOA may tackle it again in the future, but it simply was not worth the tangle of bureaucracy and hurdles that were being imposed upon the artist. The City is currently re-evaluating(or should I say establishing) a public art policy. We will see what comes of that. It is possible that funding from the public art ordinance will revive the mural issue. At last count the mural would have cost in excess of $80K. With all there is to do in the downtown it was felt that those monies were better spent on necessities such as police and security. The mural will probably happen, but probably not until the economy starts heading north again.
