Another milestone has been reached in the gentrification of the corner of Spring and Elizabeth: the arrival of advertising signage. It only took a week from the time the plywood went up (presumably to protect the building from graffiti while it was being cleaned), for marketers to begin using the spot to broadcast their own messages. And what do those messages entail? Ads for bands, of course-- but also for luxury condo sales. That feels appropriate, doesn't it, given the future purpose of the building?

It's still a little bit sad to see the art replaced so quickly with commerce. C'est la vie!
