Homewood to make decision on "You are beautiful" painting

HOMEWOOD, AL (WBRC) - The Homewood City Council will decide if the city is beautiful on Monday.

The full city council will hold a public hearing to get your feedback on whether a partially-finished "You Are Beautiful" painting on the side of a dry cleaners is technically a work of art, or a sign.

If it is a work of art, the anonymous artists would be allowed to finish it because art is exempt from the city's sign law. If the council decides it is a sign, then the dry cleaner owner would need special permission from the city to finish it and it looks unlikely that the project would have the votes to support that.

The meeting and hearing start Monday night at 6:00 p.m.
