A mere week from the opening of “Art in the Streets” at MOCA, works by Os Gêmeos, SABER, REVOK, RIME, RETNA, NORM, JERSEY JOE are currently being destroyed by the City of Los Angeles, even as tax money goes to supporting contemporary arts. Furthermore, the city also plans to buff the murals on Melrose, which have served as an outdoor gallery for thousands of Angeleños for the past few years and drawn thousands of visitors to the city.
