Overkill On The Flying Donuts

Sunday, June 22, 2014

I think the city’s initial decision that the Flying Doughnuts mural on the Koch’s baker building is an advertisement is overkill.  The mural is a stylized depiction of doughnuts, and I think it’s decoration, not an advertisement. 

It does attract attention, but if the side of the building were painted in bright stripes, that would attract attention too.  I think it looks much nicer than the wall, and I hope the city decides to let it remain.
