This time up we have a story from minnpost.com.
In Saint Paul, Minnesotta, there is a movement to change the zoning ordinance to allow murals which display products associated with a business. The linked article has numerous examples of murals that were painted over because they depicted products related to businesses.
From the article:
Council Member Gary Schiff wants to change the definition of an outdoor mural in the zoning code to allow the display of products that are related to the business inside the building.“You are not allowed to show any products that you sell in your mural, or your mural is deemed advertising,” said Schiff, “It’s really gotten silly, and the enforcement and destruction of murals has got to stop.”
The story also features a 15 year old mural on the side of a Whole Foods store which features fruits and vegetables, which are sold by Whole Foods.
