0:00Copy video clip URL Kiela and Esther discuss how the mural might have been different if they had painting it out in the street instead of inside the art museum. They say that since the only people who saw it in progress are people who are already interested in art, they didn’t get the same kind of response they might have given from the general public just walking by outside. Jerry Blumenthal agrees and says that in the art museum, you wouldn’t get a “Hey, that’s our wall!” response. Kiela agrees and says that is people in a community don’t like a mural or other piece of public art, they will destroy it.
