Praise be to public art

I would like to express my enthusiasm for the new mural currently going up at Magnolia Park on Magnolia Avenue at Flint Street in north Asheville. The talented artists have created a beautiful and professionally executed piece of imaginative illustration that will delight children and entertain their parents.

It is a great spot for a mural and I am so happy to live in a town that advocates for public art. This playground needs further beautification (some new trees would help) but the new artwork, along with the new bright-white sand recently added, help make this a cheerful family spot. Go check out the fantastic mural — kids optional.
