The massive mural — or is it a billboard? — being painted on the roof of a downtown building to promote the city’s relationship with the U.S. Olympic Committee has generated a lot of discussion in Colorado Springs.
Some people love it.
Some people hate it.
Some people have taken a special interest in the mural.
One person in particular who has experience in painting has been following the project from the very start.
That person, who asked to remain anonymous, says the mural doesn’t match the rendering approved by City Council.
As proof, the person emailed the picture shown in this blog.
What do you think?
In fairness to the artist, who has been working feverishly to complete the mural, the artwork looked pretty nice from the air during filming of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge earlier this week.
City spokesman John Leavitt didn’t seem too concerned when he saw the picture shown in this blog.
“We are thrilled with the way the mural is turning out,” Leavitt said in an email earlier this week.
“We think the muralist has done a marvelous job applying the designer’s concept to a very challenging surface. The bottom line is that the mural communicates our pride in being the home of the U.S. Olympic Committee – that has been the goal all along,” he said.
