Mural: John Lennon, Al Capone, Marilyn Monroe
Large mural of John Lennon, Al Capone, and Marilyn Monroe.[Skyler1967, 04/21/2017]
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.
