There are some good murals. If you have a chance, get downtown and drive by or take a walk. I was down there last weekend and it had a festival feel. Lions and Rabbits put it on and a lot of the artists were around talking about their art, etc.

I heard that they when they pull them down, the artist has a say in what they do with them (auction for charity, sell outright, etc). I agree, I think the art museum and the public museum should acquire some pieces.

My fiancee and I participated in today's protest. We got a chance to see many of the artworks painted on the boards. I do agree that the art needs to be preserved.  Things are moving and shaking in ways not seen since the 1960s. The artwork is very much a part of history in the making. They do need to be preserved so it helps future generation learn about the movement and what it stands for and why this movement came to be.

Apparently several of these were collected without the artists' knowledge or permission. I saw a big discussion about it on an artists' fb group.

Hadn’t heard this, but I think I’d want my art to be included in the archives / exhibit to provide context to future generations.

I know they tried auctioning them off. Wonder if the ones they have didn’t get purchased at auction.
