Conservative groups repaint murals with 'censored' after vandalism

Thursday, October 12, 2017

In response to a rash of vandalism targeting University of Minnesota student group murals this weekend, three affected political groups painted “censored” over nine panels on the Washington Avenue Bridge Monday.

The large, white-on-black words cover phrases like “racists not welcome” and “can’t paint over hate” that were painted over multiple group’s panels — including Turning Point USA, College Republicans and the Minnesota Republic — in a tumultuous few days following the annual Paint the Bridge event.
