AK whiteout continues

Via Cut Collective..."More buffing over art without permission? Our friend who lives around Dominion Rd has been seeing the whitening of Dom Rd, badly painted, varying opacity white washing. This morning she saw they were setting up outside Liquid Cafe right over top of a piece by Elliot Francis Stewart, the cafe owners don’t know what’s going on… The people putting up the scaffold (apparently) don’t know what’s happening. So who does?"

UPDATE: Mayor Brown responded promptly via Twitter about an hour after I asked if he knew anything about this and was Council involved..."Art on Liquid cafe safe! Part of maintanance work being carried out by owner. Not Council work."  Thank you, Mr Mayor.Very relieved.
