Mount Pleasant, South Carolina: Mural: John Lennon, Al Capone, Marilyn Monroe

Painted in 2016, the seemingly random celebrity trio mural soon became the focus of controversy -- a classic zoning vs. art scuffle. Mural survives, so far....

Large mural of John Lennon, Al Capone, and Marilyn Monroe.

An unusual trio, none of whom ever lived in Mount Pleasant. It was painted in 2016 on the exterior of a burrito restaurant by Portuguese artist "Odeith." The mural was quickly threatened when local politicians declared it was a sign, not art, and had to be painted over. Other politicians rallied to its defense. As of early 2017, the attractive mural appears to have more friends than foes.
