Letter to the Editor: Fill our roundabouts with art

Here is another commentary on the roundabout flowers. They were designed by a very talented artist, Troy Corliss. They were built by Troy and his assistant, Brigette Nelson in our shop, Mountain Forge, right here in Truckee. Our shop time and materials were donated, no money was made. It is funny reading the commentary on what people believe belongs in, and represents our town when it comes to public art.

The kids Iand#8217;ve asked about the flowers love them. Kids like flowers. So do many adults, especially the ones who take hikes in the summer and notice the mountains are full of flowers. It is good to see that art evokes a response from people. I think all opinions are good, positive or negative. My opinion is: A little public art isnand#8217;t going to hurt our town. We have a lot of roundabouts, fill them up with art.
