DETROIT (AP) - Leaders of an art gallery and the owner of a long-abandoned car plant are to discuss the future of a work created at the plant by the elusive British graffiti artist Banksy.

Packard Plant owner Fernando Palazuelo tells the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/1pdjdfm ) he has a meeting scheduled for Wednesday with 555 Nonprofit Gallery and Studios officials.

According to Palazuelo, they’re to discuss the possibility of returning the mural that features a figure of a child holding a bucket of red paint and brush alongside the message: “I remember when all this was trees.”

A section of cinderblock wall featuring the stenciled artwork was removed from the Packard Plant in 2010.

Gallery board vice chairman Eric Steinhaus says he’s anxious to see what Palazuelo has in mind.
