Okay.

In your experience, would there be any reason a condo board would reject the proposal of soundproofing a common wall?

Yeah, don't tear into the wall until you have approval from the HOA.  Legally, you only own the space to the first layer of paint on the wall.  The drywall on the common wall, studs, etc., really belong to the HOA.

Did some more research. It turn out the it is not dry wall but sheet rock. And the board rejected the last person
who wanted to take it down. So taking it down is out of the question. Does it matter that the wall is made of sheet rock?
It will be just green glue, MLV and drywall.

Recently, someone suggested that I use Acoustic Image Panels. It basically looks like art that I can put on the common wall.
What do you all think?

Those panels are for absorption of sound with in the room you are in only not blocking sound through a wall/ceiling..
