bristol-mural-illegaly-buffed

When the Bristol City Council illegally buffed a legal mural commissioned by The People’s Republic of Stokes Croft, they painted back. The arts-centric urban renewal group stenciled a call to action on top of the black void the city’s Clean and Green Team left over the “Hope” mural by artists Cheo and 3Dom, encouraging residents to speak up against city-sponsored censorship of legal public art. It’s a bold response that could be employed by any community facing destruction of their art. |PRSC|
