Mural On The Side Of A Liquor Store

Quick question. I came across a mural but it was on the side of a liquor store. The mural wasn't anything to do with alcohol or anything but still it was on the side of a liquor store.

Is such a thing eligible because it's a mural or ineligible because it's location? Thanks for any help.

    I understand that the ineligible location takes precedence over the indication that is valid.

    Take it for what is is worth, but this very question was asked and answered in the October 2019 AMA:

    Q: Places like schools and private property say that we are to deny all nominations on those properties. Does this precident extend to the denials thst we are supposed to do on "Adult orientated Businesses" (**** clubs, liquor stores). Example, a mural is painted on the wall of a marajuana shop. Are we to deny the mural because it's on a place that should not be accepted or are we to not worry about what type of business that it's on?

    A: The guidance from NIA OPS is, “The "businesses" themselves may not meet criteria since they would fall under generic businesses. A mural or candidate not related to the business should be reviewed on its own merit.”

    And although the criteria has recently been updated and past AMA criteria questions no longer apply, you have to remember that definitions of terms have not change.

    The mural itself is eligible. Doesnt matter its on a liquor store. You just can’t submit a liquor store because that is ineligible.

    @NianticCasey-ING given the precise wording of the new "Rejection Criteria", it seems that such a mural is expected to be rejected now:

    Ineligible location, place, or object

    . Location is an adult-oriented store or service, such as a liquor store, **** range, firearm store, or provides **** and/or pornographic content

    Is this what is intended? The "location" of a mural painted on a liquor store is definitely the store itself. But prior to Wayfarer 3.0, it was only the store itself that was to be rejected, not otherwise-eligible artworks.
