Regarding the Del Oro mural project, with all the great artistic talent in this county, we are appalled that a “flat-lander beach boy” has been the chosen one to do the new Gold Country mural, especially because the locals would likely do as well or better with a smaller dollar amount. How does someone not residing in the Gold Country propose to “create something that gives a sense of place” to the community?
