Graffiti Vandalism in California Ave Underpass
Original post made by Adrienne Mayor, Old Palo Alto, on Jun 7, 2012
Sadly, the mural was originally created in 1996 to discourage graffiti.
Most spray paint tags that have (rarely) appeared in the tunnel have been easy to erase.
But this latest vandalism has destroyed an entire panel of the sea creature paintings and they cannot be recovered.
Isn't there some sort of clear protectant seal that could be applied to the mural, so that spray paint graffiti could be easily removed without damaging the original painting?
