"According to the District Court of Puerto Rico, the artist has no claim for the destruction of the mural (because it is site-specific)" (UPDATED)

Amelia Brankov on a VARA decision out of Puerto Rico.

The decision is here.  It's an application of Phillips v. Pembroke, which I discussed here and here.

UPDATE:  Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento says "it seems to me that this case is not so much about site-specificity as it is about whether or not the artwork can be removed."
