Lawsuit filed over removal of L.A. Fine Arts Squad mural in Venice

A lawsuit has been filed over the destruction of a public mural in Venice that was created in 1969 by the group Los Angeles Fine Arts Squad. Artist Victor Henderson, a cofounder of the group, alleges that the mural, known as the "Brooks Avenue Painting," was improperly expunged last summer from its location using water blasting, according to papers filed this week in federal court.  The mural, which is famous for having served as a backdrop for a photographic portrait of the rock band the Doors, has been replaced with a replica of the original painted by another artist.
