Auburn’s got talent

Archie Warren did not paint the mural on the wall (High Street beside Rico’s Barber Syling). He took the picture that was used for the mural and I believe he came back and painted the bridge in. The mural was a community effort and that is what I love about Auburn. I do have to say the mural fell short of what it may have looked like if Mr. Warren painted it himself. If I recall, the community was involved in the painting on the side of Mickey’s Boots that Mr. Stan Padilla drew and supervised. I do applaud what the community tried to depict but I do think that Mr. Warren and a crew of other artists may try to finesse the mural so it has more of a feel for the anniversary of No Hands Bridge. What we must remember (is) that all art is in the eye of the beholder and that is what gives us such diverse art. My question to everyone that responded to Mr. (Vance T.) Sauter’s letter is, “Did any of you art lovers check out the fantastic art show ‘Writing on Walls’ that was at Placer Arts Building for the month of February? Now, that was art, and that was worth comments but I saw none in the Auburn Journal. (Editor’s note: “Writing on Walls” was the subject of two news stories and a letter in addition to multiple online comments). Too bad you all missed that show! Catherine Lentz, Auburn
