VANDALS WIN: CENSOR ARTISTS' CREATIONS AT CAPITOL CINE

(Ed.'s Note: The city finally decided to cover up the damaged paintings created and donated by local art students after they were marred three successive times by unknown vandals.

The first time the vandals scribbled "NY" on them. The second time – after the artists painstakingly restored them – they scratched the faces depicted on the murals with sharp objects. Then, on a third occasion, vandals sprayed the surfaces with red paint with the word "NO."

Today, the city finally placed gray siding on the walls and covered up the damaged portraits of musicians and Latin motifs.

Have the vandals won in censoring the creative donations of local artists that gave a bit of color and cheer to an otherwise drab downtown?

Art and Brownsville in the same sentence is the equal of Shit and toilet in another. Sorry, Van Gogh.

These buildings shouldn't neven been covered with art longer than a month, it's good the students displayed their works but don't expect to be immortalized. In this situation, everybody won, the students expose their art, the city ended the display to go back to the way the building was, end of the story. Oh! And the vandals, they are irrelevant because they have no talent.

What happened to the bike patrol de Chief Rodriguez? I guess they don't have time to investigate this case. The Chief only poses for pictures every other day, is he going to pose for this story? Chief Rodriguez needs to retire and take his "wife/roommate" with him.

I think the art idea is a good one. Make it an annual contest where art students compete for a building or space to paint. Change it every 6 months. Overall the abandoned buildings downtown, for they are an eyesore. This impacts people's perception of their city and eventually. Their own sense of worth. This can work. To stop the vandals. Install security cameras, point them towards the art work. When you catch a vsndall, fine him/her, publish their pic in the newspaper and all over the local news to shame them. By the way, the fine should not be monetary; mske them clean up the streets in a very public way. Shame them. It just takes a little imagination folks, something that is sorely lacking in Brownsville and the lower valley as a whole.

WELL AT LEAST THAT PARTICLAR CORNER WHERE THE THEATER SITS IS BEING USED FOR OTHER MORE CONSTRUCTIVE BUSINESS....'PROSTITUTION'! AN OLD BUSINESS THAT HAS SURVIVED THOUSANDS OF YEARS...CERTAINLY LONGER THAN THAT OLD THEATER TO NO WHERE!! I THINK MOST OR ALL OF THESE OLD BUILDINGS ARE DOOMED AND READY TO BE PUT TO REST! OF COURSE NOT PROSTITUTION...MEN AND WOMEN NEED SOME SORT OF ENTERTAINMENT SINCE THE PERFROMING ARTS THEATER SEALED THE DOORS AND WINDOWS WITH METAL PLANKS...AGAIN!!! NEED SOME...GET SOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
