JERRY DERLOSHON, Dana Point
The mural on the side of one of the new, large, and sensibility-offending apartment buildings on Del Prado sums up the current aesthetic experience in the new Dana Point, where huge, rectangular-shaped structures, void of any architectural inspiration, are sprouting up like so many weeds in our town.
With the town’s rich history and legacy being what it is, why doesn’t that mural depict whales breaching, or the proud Pilgrim tall ship, or a sweeping view of the marina, or the Headlands?
I get that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but this mural falls way short of celebrating our very special and much-treasured city.
Let’s try again.
