The Duke City Fix reports that the provocative painting over Snob Hill Body Jewelry in Central Avenue (aka Route 66) in Albuquerque has been redone.
I saw the original painting months ago. After a momentary arching of the eyebrows, I thought, "This is the Nob Hill area. It's bohemian. I bet people don't blink an eye at it."
Well, apparently it caused enough of a stir, according to KOBTV.
Last year, Mark Burton of an Albuquerque church conducted a petition drive calling for the city to cover up the image.
“There’s another person that I work for that wanted it removed because he felt aroused by it and he did not want to feel [that],” said Burton.
Apparently a similar mural done by the artist, David Briggs, at the Ice House strip club in ABQ was painted over by the city after complaints.
