CL photographer and gentle soul Dustin Chambers says seven people are scrubbing the retaining wall with a mix of water and soap and that several more folks are on the way. One person who drove by offered to lend his pressure washer to help remove the paint, Chambers says.
Members of the Pittsburgh community who were angry that they were not consulted about the artwork painted over the mural this morning.
UPDATE, 1:26 p.m.: GDOT is also on its way to the scene. An agency spokeswoman says crews will use a light pressure wash to remove the cover-up paint.
"We are going to go ahead and try to take it off without ruining the mural," she says.
UPDATE, 2:39 p.m.: More photos by Dustin Chambers of crews helping wash the vandalism off the mural are after the jump.
