Question Can one write-off the donation of a mural?
Context: A mural was "donated" to a local community municipal building by painting it free-of-cost onto the side of the building. This was done in conjunction with the local-government's beautification efforts. It is a mural that would normally cost around ~$10,000 given its size and detail.
My Understanding and Confusion so Far: I have read here that one cannot write off pro-bono hours. But, the hours spent on this project amounted to the creation of a piece of art. This art was created on public property and the cost of materials was covered by a local village association. So, we cannot write off any expenses from the project other than time (which as seen above cannot be written off). But, the end result was the community "receiving" a good, not necessarily a service or hours. So, I am unsure if this is a donated piece of art (can be a write-off) or a service (can't be a write-off).
