I shot this about 3 weeks ago en route to my car and did a classic double take. Whaaa...what happened? This wonderful bit of art is located on the south side of Magpies Pizza on 5th Street just west of 4th Avenue. It's book-ended with an equally cool black-suited figure on the opposite side of the wall. If someone had second thoughts about the mural they did a hack job covering it up. But street art comes and goes and maybe that's half the point. Long ago, when I was doing an archaeological recording of an ancient Puebloan room near Escalante, Utah, I asked a Hopi gentleman I knew what should be done to preserve it. "Nothing," he said. "It's supposed to just go back to the earth."
