Oregon Mural Vandalized Week After Completion

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/2sin7gl ) employees at Vistra Framing and Gallery spent a couple of hours Tuesday morning scrubbing silver-and-gold graffiti off of the mural.

Tunan’s painting is of a battle between tigers and a dragon. It is part of Eugene’s Mural Project, which commissions artists from around the world to come to the city.
