Oops. After a Pasadena code enforcement officer visited a store with a large city-funded mural on one of its walls, apparent miscommunication led to the new mural to be pained over by the owners. Artist Christian Alderete said it felt like a kick in the face, but suspects the action wasn't with malcontent and would paint it again. Code enforcement has asked the business for various fixes, including repainting a wall.
