I bring this to your attention because there must be a more interesting even spellbinding phrase to describe a collection of street art pieces – rather than simply saying murals. I propose paraphrasing the collective noun for crows and say a murder of murals. Before there is any grumbling or squabbling or calling me an old coot, one has to agree the images below clearly demonstrate the artists walloped those walls and set them aflame. In a word, they murdered these murals.

Headling today’s post … Owl Be Back

On N Charles Street there are four wheatpastes by an unidentified artist: a machine gun toting Marilyn Monroe; a cash-counting young woman from the 1950s; a French maid in a provocative pose; and, Stormtrooper Mickey. All very eye-catching and amusing.
