Public art can generate big revenues and beautify urban areas. Or it can anger residents. How does one measure its success?

A library themed muxtape.

Franklin native Deac Mong has completed "First Shot" -- a French and Indian War themed painting that will be unveiled during a ceremony and reception April 10 at the Heinz History Center, Pittsburgh. Mong's other work includes a mural for the Venango County courthouse, which depicts George Washington confronting the French at Fort Machault. A member of the committee who put together the Washingon themed markers along Route 8 told me once, with a glint in his eye, that the mural meant defendants now had to look up at two horses' asses.

Newmen play at Oil City's Howling Dog Cafe tonight - no cover, show starts at 8pm.
