Ditched in the Dirt: Who Will Pay for Emanuel Martinez's Broken Art?

The prominent Chicano mural artist is used to his work being painted over. But "Mestizaje" was different. The steel statue was fourteen feet high and set into concrete at the Tenth and Osage transit station.

But " Mestizaje" was different. The steel statue was fourteen feet high and set into concrete at the Tenth and Osage transit station.
