Conor Harrington Mural Uncovered 08-12-09

The above photos were taken today, 08-12-09. From the look of things, it would seem PublicAdCampaign and DickChicken liberated the Conor Harrington mural that had been covered by NPA City Outdoor so callously just weeks before. The mural had for a long time adorned the corner of west 13th street and Washington until recently. It was brought to my attention by Luna Park and Allan Molho that NPA had thrown up a wildposting panel (shown below) directly on top of the piece. Unable to come to grips with this injustice, I find this newly uncovered mural even more exciting than before.

Now the billboard is covering MY piece...

I'm glad that Conor's is showing again, I really love it. But, those billboards are f-u-c-k-e-d
