France's national fund for monuments paid a Swiss artist to spice up the medieval French castle of Carcassonne to "mark its 20 years as a UNESCO World Heritage site."
It didn't go over very well.
Locals and tourists alike were outraged, Mercury News reported late last month:
The medieval citadel of Carcassonne has been given a vertiginous new look to mark its 20 years as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The creation has not won universal acclaim. The newspaper Le Parisien said an appalled pair of Pennsylvania tourists, believing the paint job to be permanent, were reduced to repeating “Oh my God. Oh my God.”Images of the "art" went viral after being shared on Twitter by a user named "ArchitecturalRevival" who contrasts modern art with that of our past.
