Moab is ready for an art scene that is diverse in both subject matter and style. I, for one, support the arts, am a local artist, and find the new mural on the backside of the restroom area at Rotary Park to be a happy addition of color to an otherwise bleak, boring, prefab bathroom exterior.

Finally, don’t we, on a local and national scale, have more to worry about? The artists, who I have never met but feel safe in assuming, were simply trying to give us all something beautiful to look at. We should champion creativity and the ways in which to project it outward from ourselves.

Not all art will appeal to all people, but there is a segment of Moabites who do like the new mural. Support the local arts. Love your artists Moab, after all, chances are you are one of us.
