Twelve artists have filed suit against the city of Memphis for mistakenly painting over their murals, The Commercial Appeal reports. City workers painted over the artwork while attempting to scrub nearby murals that council members deemed “satanic.” The artists had permission from the city to paint the murals in the first place, but the artwork had been under fire from City Council member Jamita Swearangen, who requested their removal even though they did not constitute illegal graffiti.
