Art murals desecrated

Recently, I noticed that the amazing visual art murals on the building at 2514 Douglas have been painted over with a coat of ugly brown paint. Deemed graffiti by the City of Victoria, the building owners were forced to destroy this landmark art. I personally shall miss this incredible expression of visual urban rap. It gave our city flavour and for awhile I thought that Victoria just might have some energy, vibrancy and a pulse.
