Don't Believe the Media Regarding 5 Pointz - There is Hope

Went to 5 Pointz on Sunday October 13 and spoke to Marie ([email protected]) about what is happening with 5 Pointz and its destruction. She offered hope and said "Don't believe the media. We are fighting back."

IMG_1336There is a 1978 law sponsored by Senator Ted Kennedy that protects sanctioned art works from destruction. The law, titled VARA - the Visual Artists Rights Act, makes it a crime to destroy public legal art. 5 Pointz has launched a lawsuit to stop the destruction of the public art all over the building. Let's hope it works to save 5 Pointz.

Check out the video and see what is going on there, what the legal recourse is and join us in our special walking tour with artist Carlos:
