Blu says MOCA's removal of his mural amounts to censorship

Dec 15, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Reaction from street artists is mixed after the museum whitewashes anti-war painting. MOCA director calls it a communication mishap that would have offended nearby V.A. hospital and war memorial.

The Italian street artist Blu, whose anti-war mural was removed from the wall of the Geffen Contemporary building last week before the public could see it, has called the destruction of his mural by the Museum of Contemporary Art a form of censorship. Others say it was spectacularly bad planning on the part of the museum, which did not receive a proposal from the artist in advance of his starting work.
