Strummer Mural Touched Up
The invaluable EV Grieve notices on his rounds that the Joe Strummer memorial mural at East 7th and Avenue A has received a touch-up: the Clash frontman no longer has his leather jacket slung over his shoulder, and the New York City skyline has popped up behind him. Joe also seems to have dropped a few pounds. The mural was done by the ubiquitous Chico, aka Antonio Garcia, who's been festooning the neighborhood for decades and, a 2007 Villager story reveals, still lives in the Lillian Wald Houses. He recently did an Obama mural on Avenue C. Photo by EV Grieve.
