WW2 US Airfield graffiti art to be preserved

Other than a mention of the difficulties of preserving paintings on brickwork, the article does not make it very clear if this is primarily a 'recording for posterity' project - or if the future of this wonderful artwork is to be ensured by the work of the Eighth In The East project.


I suspect the former, and given that these examples are on private property I guess the task of ensuring their preservation will not be easy. I hope they succeed in doing both.

I would read this as the artwork is being documented not preserved or saved, valuable exercise but not as nice as them being saved for future generations. If Banksy artwork can be removed from walls surely some of these can, then again the former are only removed to sell for millions...
