Officials in Utah don’t give a shit about Banksy’s Sundance art or its tendency to increase property values, their policy is to remove all graffiti within 72 hours period! An official from Park City confirmed that all of the work painted on public property has been buffed which includes the barn, the monkey on the utility box, and this kneeling angel. Although, they really didn’t do a good job as you can see. As for the pieces on private property? If the owners that were lucky enough to be vandalized were smart, they might consider a wiser and more preservationist tact.
