New chalk, er, ramblings replace “Starry Night Over Georgetown”
Update 12:00 am: The artist of the original chalk drawing emailed Vox saying this drawing is his and does say “SAMO” (though the artist identified as Sa Mo in the first post), though he did not comment on the contents of the drawing.
Original Post: Georgetown washed down the “Starry Night Over Georgetown” chalk drawing, which was anonymously drawn in Red Square almost two months ago, over the weekend.
A new drawing-ish thing has now replaced the previous artwork. The new markings seem to resemble children’s art work at first look, but once one decodes the hidden message, it actually appears to be the first sign of GUSA elections. If you look closely, you can make out something that looks like “Sam for GUSA.” With slogans like “aggrandizement is altruism.” Because candidates are not yet able to make an official announcement, this is likely not anyone’s official campaign. Well, that is assuming drunken GUSA members (or children well-versed in campus politics) don’t obsess over campaigns.
