The local news was reporting an upsurge in graffiti around the museum during the exhibition, but the LAPD had no arrests to show for it. Then, one of the artists in the MOCA show, Revok, was arrested and made an example of by the LAPD. Revok was arrested trying to board a plane to an art show and was booked on an exorbitant $320,000 bail. Revok did some time and eventually got released from jail. Even though he did his time, some city officials have since told the artist that he will never be allowed to paint in L.A. again, legal walls or not.
