Neglected Hayti mural to have new life, new home

Posted by on Thu, Feb 26, 2015 at 2:25 PM

While lovers of public art were (justifiably) outraged about the painting over of a mural in downtown Durham, as the INDY reported last fall, there was not a peep about the benign neglect that was slowly destroying the Hayti mural a mile away.

The Durham Voice has reported that the mural will be re-created on a wall at 305 S. Roxboro St., on the old Thomas & Howard building. The original artist, Emily Weinstein will reconstruct the mural, which will likely be even more visible considering its proximity to the Durham Justice Center. There is little foot traffic near the mural's current home on a wall in the forlorn Heritage Square shopping center.
