A New York judge has awarded $6.7 million to graffiti artists who sued a developer for destroying their art to build luxury condos.
21 graffiti artist sued the developer, Jerry Wolkoff, of 5Pointz in Long Island City of white washing over the buildings.
It's akin to painting over Wynwood Walls here in Miami.
Just a suggestion - to save some of our history here in the Grove, maybe we can have graffiti artists paint over them, you know, like the Playhouse, and then developers would be hesitant to destroy our history. Same with the houses that are being torn down to build multi-dwellings on single lots.
Just a thought.
