Re: Enlighten or Erase? Saving the Depression Era WPA murals at George Washington High School

As always, I am educated and inspired by friends and neighbors, Paul and Mary-Ann. Yes, it would be a mistake to not save these murals since they place-mark in time two spans of contentious American history.

Having seen communities rally to save cigar ads on crumbling sidewalls, saving these murals seems like a no-brainer. How often do art and history merge to reflect the truth of times, long glossed over by racist conceit and gilded sensibilities.

Cheers and Happy Easter and Passover,
