Graffiti Removal Begins on Historic Uptown
Removing graffiti from a building can be very expensive, in the tens of thousands for large buildings. That's why Chicago is lucky to have a program like Graffiti Blasters, which removes graffiti from private property at no cost to the property owner.
Unfortunately, the graffiti that was defacing the east facade of the Uptown Theatre was too high up for the city's Graffiti Blasters program to reach, and the fact that it is a historic building disqualifies it as well, as special techniques need to be used to ensure the integrity of the structure.
That's why it's so good to see that graffiti removal has begun this week on the Uptown. Thanks to those responsible!
