In April of 2011, The owner of the winery across the street from my school removed a public mural from the back of his building. He did so by covering it with grey paint. 24-weeks of work was erased in merely a night. Either he didn't know it was public art or he didn't like it. Probably both.
Of course there were angry people!
Mia Tavonatti's Power of Words Project funded by her nonprofit Svelata foundation is now resurrecting the wall with a new team which I happened to be a part of.
