In 1986 American artist Keith Haring completed a 40-foot tall-white line painting on an outside wall for his exhibit at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam but the brick facade was then weatherboarded to improve climate control for the interior space. For the last ten years, graffiti artist Aileen Middel (a.k.a. Mick La Rock) pushed for the mural to be revealed once again and was eventually successful.
It's not too far from where I'll be staying when I'm in Amsterdam so I might sashay by while I'm there.
