Del Oro Theater

With all the press about buying locally, I’m surprised that more aren’t complaining about the unsightly painting the Del Oro is going to force us all to look at!

We have way too many fine and talented artists right here, so I can’t figure out why they are going to pay $60,000 to an outsider! The painting should reflect our beautiful town and not the rape of the land by mining!

What about painting the town markets with children laughing, or the fairgrounds, or the town itself? I’m surely not going to support a business that doesn’t support its locals. There are plenty of theaters that cater to us and not to some fancy someone who doesn’t even live here. Who cares if he has a famous name? I’d rather have local talent paint something we all care about. And then that $60,000 would be spent locally!
