A patriotic mural in Dallas honoring U.S. military veterans was painted over in black only days before Independence Day.
The painting depicted U.S. Marines from Desert Storm gathered around a young break dancing grunt. Reportedly, it was inspired by an image of such a scene captured by a Dallas native and decorated military veteran photojournalist. The American flag, in the shape of the United States, served as the backdrop for the artistic tribute. Until Friday, it graced an outside wall of The Green Room Bar & Grill in the Deep Ellum section of Dallas. Now it is gone, buried beneath a coat of fresh black paint.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I would call it a slap in the face to veterans, especially the way they did it, said Preston Pannek, the lead local street artist who painted the mural over seven days. He told CBSDFW: “They painted over the American flag. They did it a couple of days before July 4th. There’s no reason for it.”
After an outpouring of backlash, the owner of the property, Westdale Asset Management, a Canada-based company headquartered in Dallas, recanted and announced that the mural could be repainted.
Then, on Monday, The Green Room announced over Facebook the mural will be repainted by Pannek and the other original artists. “After communicating with Westdale, our leaseholder, they realized their mistake and the mural honoring our veterans and military will be repatriated to our side wall,” wrote the restaurant’s management.
