TULSA, Oklahoma -- A mural that had become a well recognized symbol of downtown - has been painted over.

What was the Mayfest mural at 3rd and Main is now a blank, white wall. Workers painted over the mural on the side of the Crown Plaza Hotel.

That happened yesterday. The mural was started in 2007 and elements were added each year since by artist William Franklin.

The cover up is part of the hotel changing hands and names. After January 1, it's going to become a Hyatt Regency - and the new logo will go up in that spot.
