Sorry about the lighting on the above picture...
As you can see, the entrance artwork is still there (The same image is actually on three walls as you enter!) It is located at the entrance to a public community center, open 7 days a week to all ages. I am not sure why this was removed in the first place, as it was only recently submitted and approved by the Wayfarer community!
In-game support told me "We have reviewed the Portal in question and confirm that it has been removed due to it does not fit into or meets the Ingress Portal Candidate Criteria."(sic). According to the most recent AMA, "doesn't meet criteria" isn't even a valid reason for removing a portal. This is non-mass produced artwork marking the entrance to a public gathering place, approved by the Wayfarer community - I have no idea what option somebody checked when reporting it as invalid, but you can see it is clearly there! Please restore. Thanks
