Starting anew
Point of Compromise
August 17, 2014

Artist David Klaren has begun work on a new mural for the east wall of the Pinedale Post Office. Klaren painted the original mural, "The Winds," while he was still in college in 1986. Although he has a tang of regret to be removing the mural that has graced the building for 28 years, he is also excited about the opportunity to put up a new piece of artwork. "I do have to admit that it is a little bitter sweet to see this mural's life come to an end. It essentially represents the span of my professional art career up this point in my life," Klaren said. The new design will unfold over the next couple of weeks. "Point of Compromise" is commissioned by the Rodger's Family Trust, in partnership with the Pinedale Fine Arts Council's In|Site:Ex|Site Public Art Program. (Spoiler alert) For more details see Davidís Facebook page.
