For Your Consideration: Mount Washington Mural Art Samples

You asked for it, you got it: a collection of work presented by Mount Washington muralists Zach Christensen, Rob Sipchen and Antonia Villaraigosa Jr.

As debate over the proposal by local artists Zack Christensen, Robert Sipchen and Antonio Villaraigosoa Jr. to create a mural along the bulkhead on Mount Washington Drive continues, some of our readers have asked Patch to present samples of the trio's work.

While we've posted photos of the work numerous times on Patch, we agreed that it couldn't hurt to collect them all in one place for the community's perusal.

Above, you'll find not only , but also images of the guerrilla art installation Jack Rohman completed during the summer of 2010.

Why are my comments marked to be deleted. They are just as valid as anyone else's. I marked all of those drawings as "inappropriate" for I feel they definitely are out of sync with peace, harmony, and real beauty whose purpose is to elevate, inspire, enrich, and perhaps partially enlighten. I would like my comments to remain on the table. Thank you for your fairness. Marian Rios

These comments appear to show a lack of understanding of the facts regarding the community, the people involved and the art, and such disturbing comments are inappropriate.

David, the big 3 are ArtCenter, CalArts, and Otis-Parsons.

How about the option "none of the above"? This is why there should not be art murals. Art is subjective. Some like it and some don't. Just like different kinds of music or sound. Everyone likes or dislikes different sounds. That is why Divine Saviour Catholic Church should not be sending out their loud amplified sound that sounds off key 6 times a day every day starting at 7:55AM. They have no clue how that sound sounds to others, and they SERIOUSLY do not care either.

you are such a jerk. and, you are very confused about the distinction between mental illness and personality. you did not know this person and you can't know his soul, so why don't you stop picking and choosing what constituted this. your attempts to mask this with ridiculous sympathy only makes this more disgusting. additionally, and like so many dopes in history, you are unaware of the following: ART DOESN'T STOP IN THE 1800'S. OR WHENEVER YOU THINK IT STOPPED. so keep your mind open.
