    Sometimes you just have to give them a chance to express themselves

    As someone who has had to be responsible for large public buildings, I think this is a nightmare for the maintenance staff. Commercial buildings like schools have a fair amount of wall damage every day they are occupied. The school is not someone’s private residence! Painted artwork on walls is very difficult to repair adequately in small murals, let alone large surfaces in a building. Not only that but the original artists probably will not be open to coming back repeatedly the next decade to try and repair the natural wear and tear. Matching paint sheen and color is hard enough on solid color walls. They will probably need to dedicate a small building to store the touchup paint! When someone decides to repaint expect numerous coats to hide the saturated colors and walls that show the boarders of the old paint colors. There will be.no pretty way to repaint. I am sure some folks think this is beatiful art now. It will be one heck of an expensive building to maintain.

      Not to worry! The building is being renovated and the art is just temporary – not something they’ll be maintaining.

    This will seem paradoxical but I actusally admire the artistic nature of it. Too bad they could not have something similar on canvases so it could be preserved. Unless interior design has changed basic building surfaces that cannot be moved should be like beige, eggshell, etc. All color is typically done with things that can be easily changed like furniture, lamps
    , art, etc. The topic still has me going!!
