The old mural, now removed.

Just heard about this– the mural on the side of the erstwhile 7-11 on Connecticut Avenue in Cleveland Park has been removed, according to this tweet from Keith Ivey, which contains a link to a picture of the sad wall in its current state.

Mural looks like real people, don’t be freaked out.

We’ll keep an eye on the space and let you know what shakes out.
