In New York City, a building that has been a street art landscape for two decades is going to be converted to million-dollar condos. (New York Times; I think it requires a login.)
The developer, as a tribute, invited street artists to come do their artwork inside the building--with the proviso that the artwork would be covered over, cleaned off, torn out, painted, etc. once the construction workers moved in and development of the condos started.
This weekend is the grand event. The building, at 11 Spring Street, is open for public viewing of the artwork for three days (it started Friday, and goes through Sunday).
Sic transit gloria artifex.
