NEW Downtown Sioux Falls Mural while wonderful, mostly hidden from view

I was a little disappointed today when I viewed the new bird mural, it is mostly hidden from full view due to the viaduct;

It is also clearly inspired by street artist genius Bansky. “Good artists copy; great artists steal.” – Pablo Picasso

I got to thinking, couldn’t we just paint a mural on the Bunker Ramp’s south side which looks like the first couple of floors of the originally proposed hotel/ramp, and then use lasers projected into the night sky to emulate the rest of the proposed 13 story hotel? But, I am not sure what we could do in the daytime, however. Maybe then, we could just block off traffic to that area to hide its blight. Ya, a construction zone maybe… (Blight? Did the city create its own TIF potential?)

Remember the problems with the baby store mural? It had to be removed because a code enforcer had a bad dream. Deny the baby mural but then rub it in with ‘The Bird”.

D@ily Spin, the mural ordinance has been updated to allow more murals.

“Say Jimmy, I guess that’s just a sign of the times, huh?”
