In Birmingham, Alabama, three street artists created a clever piece in reaction to the destruction of a historic mural.

Wooster Collective points us to a great street art protest piece from Birmingham, Alabama.

In 1978, Michael Mojher painted a vibrant mural titled “Geo-Chromatic Progress” with the help of a group of underemployed artists. The work took 18 months to complete, but was tragically painted over recently by realtors who wanted to rent the building.

In retaliation to this, three local artists; DAZE, ROKE and PRIEST, put up a clever piece which shows the paint being peeled away to reveal the mural underneath.
