Artist corrects her infamous spelling mistakes in Livermore mural

What's in a name? "Shakespere" asked.

Make that "Shakespeare". Miami artist Maria Alquilar, much maligned for 11 misspellings that popped up in the educational mural she designed for the Livermore public library last year, spent today under the hot sun correcting her mistakes.

In addition to fixing the bard's name, she changed "Eistein" to "Einstein", "Gaugan" to "Gauguin" and more.

Quite possibly educational murals should exhibit correct grammar and spelling? However, don't hold me to "mural quality" will ya. I've got a ways to go -- and no way to get there. JB
