The Perils Of Public Art In Rhode Island

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the perils of public art. In North Providence, R.I., the mayor called a building a health hazard. The owner responded by having a mural painted on that building showing the mayor wearing a crown sitting on his throne - a toilet. In Moscow, an ad agency had a mural painted to welcome fans of the World Cup. It's a 12-story-tall image of a woman holding a soccer ball, and the 12-story woman is the ad agency director's wife. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
