Recently we’ve featured several blog posts discussing the Angelo di Benedetto mural at the soon-to-be-demolished Colorado Judicial Building. The Denver Post reports that workers have run into a bit of a problem in the process of removing the mural: when one of the panels broke, they discovered it was painted on panels made of 30% asbestos. The state wasn’t having much luck in finding a new home for the huge mural. Now, according to an earlier version of the Post story that you can read here, whoever takes the mural will also have to take responsibility for the asbestos liability. Unfortunately, that doesn’t bode well for the mural’s future. As planned, the mural will be placed in storage.
