The art of demolition

Original post made on Jul 23, 2012

As demolition proceeded last week on the Hillview Middle School campus, this mural -- part of a long tradition of students' creating outdoor art at the school -- was the last standing when a photographer stopped by. ==I Almanac photo by Daniella Sanchez.==

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this one says it all. So sad to see the all the colorful, creative artwork demolished and replaced by an unwelcoming barred jail.

Are pictures of the murals available online somewhere?
