Public Art Ban: Sunset Date

Yesterday on one of my facebook posts, I think from the blog post I wrote yesterday about damaged photo that was given back to me, had a comment asking when the "Public Art Ban" in Holyoke would be over. From what I was told, there is no end date written into it. It would appear, on paper, that the "temporary ban" has a permanent bond, like gesso on a canvas, than we would like. While doing some research, I came across this quote scribbled on a wall, in an alley. I commend the artist for their statement.

The same City Council that voted to have a municipal position added to the City, "The Creative Economy Coordinator," now has a ban on public art being installed. Tisk Tisk Tisk....
