Towering Beauty



The Blog Jammin' by Heidi Walters from Wednesday, Oct. 23 ("Human Intervention") had me thinking about a topic I have discussed with friends and acquaintances on occasion: What would it take to beautify the Eureka water tower with a mural or something?

The tower is a town landmark that can be seen far and wide. Wouldn't it be great if that landmark was something nice to look at? (The cooling-of-Eureka-tempers blue isn't terrible, but ...)

I'm not sure what the cost would be for something that size, but maybe we can use some redevelopment funds for it. I mean, uh ... right, maybe not.

Who can cajole Flatmo or Alex Fogg or some other creative, artful types into making some submissions on designs for this and help make this dream come true?
