The City Of Quincy MA.

Stop the Removing of the mural of our President depicted as Jimi Hendrix

    1. Petition by

      Barack Hendrix

      Quincy, United States

The alleyway from the courthouse parking lot to Hancock st. has been in disrepair for years. The city hasn't clean it, weeded it or cared for it. There was broken glass, overgrowth, and distasteful graffiti all over this alley. After a local artists cleaned and painted the alley, The city is demanding it be removed. This is real art for real people. Art is to be something to admire, to cause people to talk, to inspire. This piece is doing just that. It's the most beautiful art in the city for years. Please check out the art and the article:

      This is a very well painted picture that fits the name of the bar perfect. It was also a lot of hard work someone took there time painting and no1 will do graffiti on that wall because people respect the time & work someone put in!!!!

      the city needs cultural uplift such as this mural and the police state mentality that boston has towards public art needs to stop.

      This isnt art its political propaganda, this is an add to reelect obama, why cant you see that? he is wearing a relect obama button, and it is using obamas campaign slogan of forward as well. Taken in by government propaganda. how would you like it if they put up a big mural of curt cobain with mitt romney buttons on and shouting "with Mitt Romney , It's less dangerous.." sheesh.

      dont use the greatest guitarist of all time to promote a politician.

      Originally from Quincy, I know this alley receives no attention from the city. It never has. This work of art brightens a dim spot, and makes it better. It is not a political thing, it is a representation of the establishment. Just like the Adamses on the main sign.
