VIDEO | MOCA Censors Blu's Downtown L.A. Mural

"A MOCA spokeswoman would not comment on the whitewashing, but the piece may have struck a delicate nerve center that sits just steps from the wall. The piece faces the Veterans Administration healthcare building on Temple Street... A representative for the Veterans Administration said that management at the facility was aware of the mural, but did not complain to MOCA. The mural is also just steps from the Go For Broke Monument, a memorial to Japanese Americans who fought in World War II" -LA Downtown News

Too controversial for you MOCA? But I thought you were so throughly embracing "street art", and now this?
