Nine months after a wall mural was destroyed during the filming of the “Bumblebee” movie in downtown Vallejo, a resolution has been reached between the artist and Paramount Pictures.
The mural titled Vallejo Rising, located on the west side wall of 401 Georgia St., was painted over by the production crew last September — causing a minor flap in the community.
“Since the time the mural was painted over, Paramount Pictures has been working to make things right with the city and its residents,” according to an official statement from Paramount.
Officials said they worked with the artist Alvaro Garcia in an effort to restore the mural. A professional art conservator, hired by the film studio, concluded the mural couldn’t be restored.
Paramount said it has “reached an amicable resolution of this matter” with Garcia.
