The issue has been ongoing since last year, when it was determined that the sign violated a town ordinance. In April, council cleaned up the ordinance to better define murals. However, the new wording did not grant a pardon the mural. Last night’s vote gives the mural that pardon.
The mural, painted by Portuguese artist Sergio Odeith, is a beautiful and vibrant addition to the building. The pictures of John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe and Al Capone are far more entertaining than a plain old wall. It’s even made it onto Roadside America.
Great effort, Mt. Pleasant, in the efforts to #savemoesmural.
