Committee Concerns

  • What is the timeline?
  • Is this a handpainted mural?
  • How is it applied?
  • What is the lifespan of the mural?
  • Was there any consideration in widening the demographic represented?
  • Are the individuals members of the Glenville neighborhood?  Do you have their permission to use their images?
  • Would you consider using a different colored background, perhaps an eggshell white instead of a starkwhite.  It will so dirt and weathering sooner using a starkwhite.
  • Can you carry the white background all the way to the top at the parapet?
