MOCA Whitewash Is Finally Big News

It took them long enough, but the LA Times finally ran a couple of pieces in the past two days on the huge story that’s been sitting in their backyard: MOCA commissioning then whitewashing a mural by Italian street artist Blu, months before an upcoming street art show. The Downtown News broke the story last week.

As FBLA predicted, the story is starting to blow up. Aside from the LA Times, the New York Times Arts Beat blog wrote a small blurb on Monday. The Guardian picked up on the LA Times‘ reporting and ran a blog item. One would imagine the story would makes its way across Europe soon enough. So there you go.
