Duck Head apparel, the only current tenant of the former Daily Bread Flour Mill, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. Part of the wall is painted a light yellow that resembles one of the colors in Duck Head’s logo, though it is not immediately clear whether there is a correlation. Robert declined to answer questions about Duck Head’s possible involvement in the removal of the mural.

UPDATE (Aug. 7): A spokesperson for Duck Head declined to comment on the issue.
