Owner should take down vulgar posters

The owner of Art Wave, on the corner of Victory and Alameda, needs to take into consideration that his store is on a corner that is a major crossing point for children walking to school. The vulgar poster of Johnny Cash flying “the bird” that is at eye level with 2nd graders needs to be removed, along with the nudes that are placed front-and-center on the sidewalk.

They may be art, but being art does not make it appropriate for the eyes of impressionable youth. Metro has been much more responsible and responsive [regarding] posters at the bus stop at the same corner when they have been less than family-friendly. I can only hope Art Wave will become a more responsible community partner.
