KOGO NewsBy Eddie McCovenJun 30, 2022ESCONDIDO - Artwork featuring an anti-police theme will remain on display at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, after board members voted to keep it in place. Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara told NBC 7 he and other city leaders are not happy about it. 'I understand you can have controversy and you can have discussions about things, but we need to be civil, and I thought this was incredibly disrespectful,' McNamara said. The piece entitled "Three Slick Pigs" is from a Los Angeles based artist known as OG Slick and features an image of police officers in riot gear with the letters A.
