Painting’s better off the wall

In a recent article, this reader noted that the mural in the City Council Chambers may be escorted out of town on a national tour.  

Hopefully, genuine patrons of the arts might engage in a fundraising campaign to ensure that this work stay on tour for the entire millennium.  

Then, if we are victorious in keeping the mural’s graffiti like quality in distant time zones, we might strategize how to rid ourselves of the sexist and Wal-Martish portion of it that the city embraces as its logo.
