|Wall painting in underway in downtown Los Angeles.|
Art like this can add visual interest and entertain. There were people standing across the street watching the artist as I was. That points to the temporary effects this has on a place, but will people stop across the street and linger to look at this when it is finished? Perhaps. It will more likely become part of the "feel" of the neighborhood. One of those things that pleases people and that they would notice and miss it if it were gone.
