The Bull on the Aventura Wall

I Spy: April 2018

by Sally Bjork

From the May, 2018 issue

"A toro to go with some tapas!" writes John Zainea of April's I Spy. "The mural with the bull is on a wall of Aventura," says Chad Rupley. It's on "an alley wall on E. Washington, between 4th and 5th Avenues," writes Sara Kitzsteiner.

Aventura's two storefronts at 214-216 E. Washington were built by Frederick Sorg, a paint and glass dealer, in 1871-1872. "It was purchased by Sava Lelcaj [in 2013] to offer Spanish small plate dishes [and] wonderful cocktails," adds David Karl.

"The mural is by Martin Kazan, a talented young Ann Arbor artist," says Riitta Niemela. "Martin is a tattoo artist," continues Karl, "and the mural depicts a woman bullfighter." "I am uncertain why the Torera wields a feather writing quill," writes Arno Scheller about the mural's bullfighter, "perhaps to emphasize that the pen is mightier than the sword ..."

We received 23 entries correctly identifying Aventura. Our random drawing winner is Gen Stewart. "Ole!" she writes about the mural, referencing last month's clue. She will enjoy her $25 gift certificate at Casey's Tavern.

To enter this month's contest, use the clue and photo on the Back Page of the May issue and follow the instructions at the bottom of the page to submit your answer.    (end of article)
