Culver City Murals Being Demolished

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 – The murals in Culver City that I wrote about earlier on June 29, 2013, remained untouched (with the exception of other artists putting their own work over another’s) for a lot longer than planned.  The scheduled demolition of the old car dealership apparently got delayed until now. This past month the builder started demolishing parts of the dealership and tearing down walls and ceilings in other areas. You can see that in the photos I took. As I wrote in my blog entry, “Culver City Murals”:

Street art is a form of expression and is created for a variety of reasons.  But the actual art itself isn’t meant to be forever.  The art work can be whitewashed, painted over by other artists, or demolished. However which way it works out, l agree with the organizer: I will miss seeing these murals every morning while waiting for the bus.  I rather see an old decrypted building cover with amazing murals than another mini shopping center, especially since there are quite a few of those in the area.
