‘CITY OF MANY COLORS’/acrylic/
November 11, 2019
By Arthur H. Gunther III
The thing about a city is its diversity. It doesn’t get built by one tribe. It doesn’t rise to its heights nor extend to its breadth and length by one anointed species. It doesn’t run on one person’s moxie nor fall on the deceit and greed of just an individual.
It takes decades, even centuries for a city to develop, and in that time of success and failure, wealth and poverty, war and peace, there are many running the show.
No one can claim ownership of a city. It is literally of many colors.
And so goes a nation.
