In honor of an my newest article (coming out in The Tampa Tribune on Saturday) I changed my layout and header. The picture is of graffiti at Crossover Community Church in Tampa, FL.
Graffiti has always fascinated me. It’s in-your-face guerrilla art, often showing off bright colors and an urban sensibility.
Web Urbanist often has articles about all sorts of urban art. The newest WU article is about abandoned buildings in America; every time I read the site, I realize I have a lot to explore in my own back yard.
So, is graffiti a modern scourge or an art form unto itself?
