Logan Hicks' piece saved

Logan Hicks
Nuart 2009

Logan Hicks' great piece on a very visible wall of a shopping mall in central Stavanger was saved in the last moment by the efforts of the Nuart crew, the public and the media. The scaffolding was already in place, and the painters were ready to paint over it during a major renovation of the building. Fortunately the building owner realised how valuable the piece is and saved it from being painted over. Now it looks even better with a white background, as opposed to the pink wall that used to be.

And then somebody placed this sign under the painting:

Web life and real life get mixed up in this brilliant facebook interaction with the art piece. Unfortunately the sign soon fell down.
