"It's Up to Us," the mural that John Rivera-Resto and his team painted in 2012-2013 on Clark Avenue and W. 25th Street, has been vandalized with a large graffiti tag.

The mural is a tremendous artistic achievement that took months to produce. Its images are meant to capture the evolution of a neighborhood and the ways in which people working in community can build a safer and better future.

"A great mural lives within an environment. But it does not preach, it does not blame; it makes us understand," Rivera-Resto said, upon the mural's completion.

The mural, which was to serve as an artistic centerpiece of a new development corridor in the city's Clark-Fulton neighborhood, won "Best Public Art" in Scene's annual Best Of competition in 2015.

WKYC reported that a property owner across the street is offering a $200 reward to anyone who "apprehends the perpetrators."
