This time it’s over an exhibition by Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum. Graffiti commissioned for a special event was hosed down and destroyed by the council. Simon Pemberton, NSW president of the Australian Graphic Design Association was philosophical:

“When I heard about it I was really unhappy and distressed, now I understand how it happened, anger is counter-productive. I don’t want to off-side the ranger and the council, I don’t want to make enemies of these people, there is no point. Shit happens sometimes, we’ve all been there.”
