Re: “Feedback 07-24-13


I still have no idea what you're talking about. That link was a search that showed people who were posting about the murals. (Again, here it is:…) I was not arguing about any link between anything. The vast majority of the comments were in support of the Wall Therapy program.

Your reading comprehension and leaps of logic are pretty funny.

MJN-You're putting words in my mouth. You've made your point that you don't like the murals. I get it, just like Paul Goldberg doesn't like them. My point is that the way you both express your opinions is self-serving and unproductive.

Odds are, the majority of people don't care about the murals. They don't upset them and they don't make them feel inspired.

I'm not gonna engage your snark, but I will say there are places that require neighbors to approve what goes on on your own property. Most suburbs have some sort of regulations like that. Not saying you should leave Rochester--you both may actually be productive for the city in some ways--just trying to point out another option for something you actually have control over.

Paul Goldberg, this is the second time you've expressed your dislike for the Wall Therapy program. (…) Instead of belaboring your complaints you could find the good in the Wall Therapy program. Art is often meant to challenge preconceived notions. Perhaps take this opportunity to try to understand what the artist was going for in their murals?

Maybe take the "rat" mural as an opportunity to meet the building owner and ask why he chose to use that wall for painting?

Maybe use the art as a generational bridge to speak with your grandchildren? (I bet they might like it.)

...or you could continue to complain to a newspaper and feel better for venting frustrations on the public.

Either way, a quick twitter search suggests that your opinion regarding these murals is not the majority. I'm guessing you don't use twitter, so here's the link:…
