Art in unusual places

I'm fascinated when I see graffiti covered by various shades of paint all on the same wall. Where are people getting all these different colors of paint and why is it so hard to find one paint color to cover up all the tagging?

It baffles me, but in truth I think the effects are lovely.
For June's 2nd Saturday I walked around looking to take pictures of art and happenings, but instead took pictures of the building around 16th and R. I'm not sure what the deal is with this place, but the walls are constantly changing with new colors appearing often. My mom would call it an eye sore, but I think it is beautiful.


  1. I don't know how I missed this post. I always wonder the same thing! Once I stumbled upon a flickr group dedicated to this. It was pretty great.

  2. I agree, Amanda! It's beautiful! Art that hides art. In 200 years someone will be scraping off layers of paint just to see what our culture was like.
