Another One Bites The Dust

(Before It's News)

Here’s a recent article by Brian Addison for Longbeachize, about another great mural in Long Beach getting buffed out. Since I’ve helped manage the POW! WOW! LONG BEACH art festival for the last two years, several people have contacted me to ask for more details. I should clarify that this is not in fact a POW! WOW! LONG BEACH mural, but a collaboration between POW! WOW!’s founder, artist Jasper Wong, and Microsoft. That said, I really loved the mural, and ArtX’s stated reasoning for buffing it out doesn’t quite gel with me. On the other hand, it’s their wall, and (I assume) they can do whatever they want with it. If we penalize property owners for buffing out murals, then less and less property owners are likely going to generously donate their walls to the cause of public art.
