Shepard Fairey Bowery Mural

This was the scene at Bowery and Houston on Friday, where after being bombed, exported and deemed illegal, Shepard Fairey’s May Day mural was finally reduced to the IRL equivalent a street art blog comments page, with one flamer demanding: “Bring back the Haring.” You’ll recall that the Keith Haring mural that was re-installed at the site last summer was taken down in December of ’08, and with the gallery that had been curating the coveted wall, Deitch Projects, officially closed, the mural’s future is up in the air.
