Sound Exchange -- Daniel Johnston, Hi How Are You It says something about a city when over 50 different works (mostly murals) are given votes in this category. Not long after the unveiling of the masterpiece, a local graffiti-removal firm solicited Sound Exchange to help with their "problem" on the south wall.
