“How do you feel about the graffiti in your neighborhood? Is there a place for it in DC? What is your impression of the people who illegally tag? How would you like to see graffiti handled? Join MuralsDC as it launches its 2011 program with a look at the culture of graffiti and discussion with people involved on all sides-former taggers, artists, agencies who clean graffiti, and those who fund public art. Help us achieve a better understanding of graffiti and what we can do to achieve solutions that LAST.”

  • What: MuralsDC Panel Discussion on Graffiti
  • When: Tuesday, July 26, 6 to 8 pm
  • Where: Busboys & Poets, 2021 14th Street NW – Langston Room
  • Info: Contact Nancee Lyons, DC Department of Public Works, at [email protected] with questions/comments.

  • Graffiti is only public art when it is painted by tax paying non-criminals on property which they own and or maintain — not by shady characters who destroy homes and businesses and public property with their vandalism that struggling businesses and property owners must clean up at their own expense; not to mention gov’t property which is cleaned up at the expense of tax payers. I hope MPD will be present at the discussion to arrest anyone who stands up and takes credit for the vandalism all around the city.
