Thanks for the advice. I never thought about the Sharpie bleeding. I'll
have to do a small sample. I know what you mean about the attack of
the roller-bearing janitors. They've already expressed concern about
how to paint the walls. There are some cracks there now, and I'm going
to find some obsure earthquake that happened somewhere in the world and
make the cracks part of the mural. I talked to a muralist who does
giant paintings of whales in Calif. on the sides of giant
warehouses along the coast. He said that there is usually a contract
between the owner of the wall and the artist specifying that the work
will not be removed, covered or changed in any way until some specific
date, and that the artist guarantees that he will come back and do
any repairs to the project up until the same date. It's an interesting
concept--and it would be binding on the landowner if he sold the
property. It's probably more responsibility than many artists would
like to have. It's so nice to just sell your work and wave goodbye.
