From the artist:
I want to let you know that the Potter’s House Mural, “The Light of the World,” is gone. It was painted over with beige paint today Tuesday October 13, 2014 between 1:00 and 4:00 pm. The first coat was applied at around 1:00 pm and the second coat was applied between 3:00 and 4:00 pm.
I just want to say thank you to all the people who supported the mural. Thank you for your letters of support and your gracious comments supporting the preservation of the mural. I guess all of these signs of support and appreciation were not enough to save it. However, I am very thankful to all of you for your support! Thanks to all of you who signed the electronic petition and the paper petition and who gave me moral support. There was not a day that went by without a person stopping me on Columbia Road or calling me on the phone or emailing me, asking me about the status of the mural and giving me words of encouragement and telling me they hoped the mural would stay. This means a lot to me! I feel very thankful to have seen all of these signs of support and appreciation. (more…)
