Spelling mishap at Livermore Library
Sixteen foot wide ceramic mural outside of a library in Livermore, California has spelling errors in it. Historical figures like Vincent van Gogh, Albert Einstein, Shakespeare, Michelangelo and seven others all had their names mispelled in the $40,ooo mural.
Miami based artist Maria Alquilar has agreed to be flown back to fix the errors for $6,000 plus expenses. She says "The people that are into humanities, and are into Blake's concept of enlightenment, they are not looking at the words, In their mind the words register correctly."
