The Maine Arts Commissioner speaks up

So who really owns it?...

"From Donna McNeil, Director of the Maine Arts Commission:The Maine Arts Commission has received several inquires from the public and the press on the issue of the labor mural. In response we would like to share that the mural was not commissioned through Percent for Art but was privately funded by the Department of Labor. The mural is actually a series of paintings on panels which can easily be removed from the wall without damage. The State of Maine is actively seeking an appropriate place to reinstall the mural where it can be more fully enjoyed by the public."
