? On Second Street

Many folks in town are less than pleased with the monstrosity that passes for a court house across the street from the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum but recently something new has appeared which is generating puzzled looks and outrage from passers-by.  On the Spring St. corner at Second, the  yellow “Kelly House” complex which consists of a house rental and a few retail businesses, is now sporting huge black and grey portraits of Albert Einstein and Marilyn Monroe.  The big question mark has raised some speculation- who next?- Lizzie Borden?

St. Mary’s church has the corner lot where a large statue of the Virgin Mary is located.  Einstein seems to be sticking his tongue out in that direction. But the big question is- WHY? Does the city have any regulation in place about public mural art?  There’s bound to be further developments on this one.

    I don’t care for it, I don’t think it’s tasteful at all (just like the courthouse) but that is only my own opinion.
