The project was called Inside/Out. Click here and here to read about it.

Weren’t they all defaced with weeks?

@Curious Nope. Some were and Chris Randall fixed them. Only about 10% were tagged.

I like the persistence of the artists.
Was the last batch of faces formally removed by the participants? or were they erased through weather and shenanigans?
And in this case… are the above two actions really the same thing?

They were wheatpaste, and never intended to be permanent. The idea—as I have read it here and elsewhere—was always to be a temporary installation celebrating the people who came together under that highway.
