Loving Artist Faces Jail Time

Heather Loring writes to us today that the Toronto Star reported that:

Artist Ed Stross faces a 30-day stint in jail unless the American Civil Liberties Union manages to overturn his conviction for painting the word “love” on his mural in this Detroit suburb.

Stross’s long-running dispute with local officials is over his addition of the word to his mural in 1997 in memory of Princess Diana. …Roseville, Mich., officials say using letters in the mural violates a sign ordinance.
