Petition to Stay the Destruction of Senior House Artwork Loading… Posted on: July 13, 2017Sport Death One thought on “Petition to Stay the Destruction of Senior House Artwork” This petition has been granted! Student Life would anyway have wanted the house government to approve the decision. But DSL’s mural-review group *may* well advise the new residents that the murals are an “attractive nuisance” in that they “foreseeably attract” unwanted former residents and alumni. Here’s a solution that ought to make everyone happy, though— *Supplemental Petition* “We are writing … to request that Student Life protect the murals in perpetuity by having Housing Operations apply an anti-graffiti clear coat before painting them over.” Reference: DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, “MuralsDC Wall Donation, Application, and Agreement Forms,” 2017 (“I agree to allow Project Staff to apply anti-graffiti clear coat to protect the completed Mural from future damage.”) Technical note: You have to roughen the surface slightly to keep the new paint from peeling off.
