City officials try to save Occupy L.A. mural - Mayor says it has historical significance


City officials are in the process of figuring out a future for a large mural in the center of City Hall park, which served as a gathering spot for protesters during the 58-day Occupy L.A. demonstration.

Olga Garay-English, the executive director of the city's Department of Cultural Affairs, said she received a call from the mayor's office Wednesday afternoon about the mural.

"The mayor's office recognizes that this has historical significance so we're working together to make sure that we come up with a good and appropriate solution," she said.

-------

Garay-English said the mural appears to be a group effort, and is "in the spirit of what's been happening out there."

2. It's a product. Occupy has finally succeeded in creating something of value to capitalism
If they'd stick to selling paintings and stop getting in the way of people trying to buy stuff, everyone would get along just fine.

as if the :sarcasm: tag is needed.

preserving art, then why did he allow LAPD officers to destroy several other pieces of folk art, most notably a sculpture made of bamboo?

Bottom line: Villaraigosa lies. Every word out of his mouth from this point forward needs to be analyzed starting with the question, "Is he lying?"

Do not be surprised to see it whitewashed overnight under the cover of darkness.
