While driving across the West Seattle Bridge, I noticed this sign (and took a picture while stopped in traffic):
Because I teach classic art at my pre-school, this sight made me feel sad. Modern forms of art should be valued from an educational standpoint as much as classical pieces are, but there is a place for both kinds of art. Street art being painted on a representation of The Mona Lisa was disgraceful in my opinion. The billboard was replaced within less than a week of the graffiti appearing. I was glad of this.
What are your thoughts on graffiti? Should it be a valued form of art? Am I out-of-bounds feeling frustrated with the graffiti artist?
