Graffiti is as old as civilization itself, with examples found thousands of years ago in the pyramids of ancient Egypt and the Roman city of Pompeii. In contemporary America, any resident or visitor to a city — or even small towns–will see graffiti covering overpasses, abandoned structures and the sides of buildings.
On February 3rd, we will host a panel discussion that asks the following questions:
Is graffiti a valid form of artistic or political expression?
Does graffiti contribute to a sense that a neighborhood is blighted?
Can graffiti be a positive influence on city life, or is it alwaysdetrimental?
Who decides what is good graffiti, and what is bad?
Can different sides of the graffiti debate come to a consensus on itsvalidity?
Please come to City Affair and contribute your opinions and questions. The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer session from the audience. Doors open at 7:00 PM, discussion begins at 7:30.
Pete Wollaeger, local artis, inventor of the “eyeball” http://www.stensoul.com/
Angelo Olegna, “Mayor of Cherokee Street”
And addition panelists to be announced.
