SAN DIEGO NOT FEELING BARRY Mc GEE MURAL
This is what San Diego needs. More art projects to this plain and boring down town yuppie area. If there's more art you might actually get some talented people rolling through and leaving some memorable art work that can last for decades. I hope this survives.
“I think it’s awful, it’s an ugly eyesore,” complains a San Diego resident of a commissioned mural by Barry McGee directly across from City Hall. Looks like the controversy will never end when it comes to the debate between “graffiti and art” -- even when McGee is involved.
The Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego commissioned Barry McGee to paint a mural as part of a large exhibit showcasing street art. The unfinished mural has garnered a lot of attention, much of it negative.
A local cop asks “What’s graffiti and what’s not?” Others say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
The museum says that once the mural in completed in the next few days, if reaction is still negative they will remove it.
See why the people want this out of SAN DIEGO
