Duhok's old art institute was relocated to a new facility, and the campus was demolished. There were once lawns and buildings, with years worth of student work making it a beautiful, creative space for families to visit and picnic. The demolished ruins were heaps of rubble, with a few foundations, one building in disuse, and some murals. There were haunting, abandoned sculptures lining the road. The ruins were flattened to make way for a park.
