A mural in Dewey square is  generating quite a controversy.  It’s part of an ICA exhibit, featuring the work of Brazilian artists  Os Gemeos.  The mural is a large scale painting  of a boy whose head is wrapped up in a red jacket. The controversy was sparked after Fox 25 aired a piece where a passersby told a reporter that the character in the mural looked like a terrorist.
