Back in college in the early 80’s, I wrote a paper on graffiti for an art class I was taking. The paper suggested that personal expression on the streets was an art form. While this wasn’t a purely original thought, it was, I believe, early in the movement. And it was controversial in the class. Especially with the real artists. I thought it was really fun – I had great photos, etc. And it was a lot more interesting than my paper about Kandinsky’s White on White.
Max submitted a photo for a contest with the theme Why? – he chose Why do people destroy property? And he came in second place! (He submitted the Blaze photo & spray painted the mat! It was very cool. The other one is from the shoot that day!
Yesterday, my in-laws took us all to a great lunch at the Lancaster Brewing Company. I had a great grilled caesar salad. Yum! But I digress.
The boys went to the rest room and came back laughing uncontrollably. Serious giggles. They tried to explain what they’d seen – and finally, I gave them my phone and told them they could take a picture of it. Here goes.
A graffiti treasure hunt of sorts.
