Sandblasted Away

What a bummer. I always liked the Graffiti Face, the spray-painted visage that stared down at passing cars from the rear brick wall of the old David Berwick building at the corner of Madison and Main.

I drove by this morning, and the face had been sandblasted away.

I know they're fixing the building up and turning it into condos, so this was inevitable, but it's kind of a disappointment. I like little bits of guerilla art turning up here and there around the city. It gives the place more character. I always hate to see them get erased.
