Greg Brown's fanciful murals never fail to cheer me up when I see them. What a contrast to the more recent "art" that the City Art Commission has sponsored, such as the epoxied-together circuit boards on Lytton Plaza, the "Color Of Palo Alto" nonsense at City Hall, or (shudder) Go Mama -- any one of which triggers emotions ranging from irritaton to rage depending on how my spleen is doing that day.
