Boston Marathon memorial mural effort put on hold

A group of artists painting a memorial mural near Dudley Square for Marathon bombing victims were forced to stop by police in a dispute over permits, and one of the organizers is criticizing the city for what he called a lack of cooperation.

More than 80 artists were originally scheduled to paint the exteriors of buildings at a long-vacant former MBTA lot in Roxbury on May 11, as part of an event called Mural Fest, according to Jason Turgeon, an organizer. The site is privately owned by Nuestra Comunidad Development Corporation.
