Tacoma Mural Controversy

The Proposed Mural Rendering

Tacoma Mural Controversy

Eddie Sumlin of Fab-5, the organization that is involved with the creation of the mural responded by saying, "There's not going to be any competition," he said. "Us doing a commissioned mural has nothing to do with tagging; aerosol is just a medium."

The mural proposal is being voted on again in September.
