So someone completely destroyed the mural on 17th street between Alabama and Florida over the weekend. The mural was just over 7 years old, and was made by local artists.
While walking by today I took a quick series of the damage with my cell phone. I quickly pasted them together to give a sense of the damage. It’s pretty unreal. […]I think the reason this makes me so upset is twofold: 1) I know several of the artists. 2) There is a huge blank white wall just across the street. Dude(s), tag that instead of the mural.
That is all.
I'll spare you the usual “good vs. bad graffiti” debate, as I'm pretty sure we have our minds made up about that. Instead, here's a couple of shots of the mural, as seen in better days:
