Two of the pieces included in the Meet The Moment art walk, a public art show on Franklin Street, were stolen last Wednesday.
Mary Parry, the organizer of the art walk, was notified by artist Sophie Vaughn that one of her pieces was missing. This made Parry realize that the painting by Kippy Perkins, which featured historical women's activism, had been taken as well.
On Thursday, the Meet The Moment Instagram account made a post announcing that the art had been taken and that the rest of the artwork would be taken down.
Some of the art will be included in an upcoming auction, with proceeds going to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP.
Parry said since the original goal of the art walk was to inspire Chapel Hill community members to vote, it made sense to take down the art with the election approaching and pieces going missing, especially since she is still able to promote the artwork on the social media accounts.
