Yesterday, Marcus Fetch, the Birmingham artist of the murals that were mysteriously defaced in January, released photos of the newly restored murals on his Facebook page.
Only days after the three murals in the Avondale (at MELT) and Woodlawn neighborhoods and 1st Avenue North and 39th Street location were vandalized, fundraisers were being held to restore them.

From Marcus Fetch’s Facebook page, here are close up photos of the restored murals. And we must say they look better than ever.
Good job Birmingham!
