Trail art is a blessing
Hector Ybarra blesses a mural Thursday on the Cherry Creek Trail in Denver. Brazilian muralist Alexandre Orion returned for the blessing after repairing the murals that had been damaged by graffiti vandalism. Orion’s mural depicts Aztec, Inca and Navajo iconography and a boy and girl — inspired by his children — wearing native dress. The forced perspective of the mural makes it appear as though the children are gazing at passers-by on the trail.
