We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Well, it didn't take long before someone ruined the Banksy fun. LAist reader Wicks Walker said a portion where the security guard with the Jeff Koons dog was is gone. As in someone took a whole chunk of the wall. Compare the above photo to this photo here.

Wicks, however, notes the positive of this: "One good thing about this is that this really great piece being lifted will preserve it." And such is the life of street art.
