Joe's signature is back

Joe had prepared for his mural (the huge one on the south side of Epic Rides, next to Stone just north of 6th Street), to be trashed. That's why he'd sprayed a protective clear coat over the finished project. The coat can make it easier to remove paint on top of his. It can also help protect the mural from sun and weather damage.

On July 2, or maybe a few days before — just after he'd lovingly finished the mural — someone crossed out his signature. I don't know much about the stories behind the art that hateful groups paint, but I sure wish they'd stop making Tucson uglier and breaking the hearts of artists and art lovers for their own selfish wants.

When I checked back a couple days ago, the signature had been restored.
