art is not a crime

September 27, 2011

“art is not a crime” — I used to hate this saying when I was younger. Matter of fact, I thought it was corny. Recently they took this old house and turned it into a beautiful piece of artwork.  However, the city then tried to give the owner a $5,000 a day fine till the mural was taken down.  I think that everything worked out in their favor, but it still raises eyebrows on where the country stands on public art.
