A three month old exterior mural depicting the history of the historic Music Box movie theater located in the 3700 block of Southport Avenue was hit by a graffiti attack. The mural, painted on stucco, had been sealed with a clear coat varnish. However, the varnish was unable to protect the mural and the mural, which took over 40 hours to paint, is now damaged beyond repair.
Murals play an important role as street art and to beautify the urban street environment. They often can reduce the frequency of graffiti tagging on a particular wall or commercial corridor. However, after completion, murals should be coating with an anti-graffiti clear coating. This step is essential to protect the mural against graffiti attack. Additionally, Clean City Pro Yellow Label or Clean City Pro Green label can be used to attempt to remove the spray paint graffiti tag without damaging the underlying mural surface. A clear coating will help to prevent the graffiti remover from removing the mural paint.
