I went to cover over some graffiti this am by Sidecar's Alley. Took 2 minutes. Pretty Easy. I was disturbed to see some of B1E's artwork besmirched with Graffiti and then a couple of blank pieces of White cardboard/canvas just covered in Graffiti. That corner Farwell and Glenwood has been a problem area lately, you can tell by the sheer volume of graffiti there. I think B1E needs to fix its artwork so that its not covered in Graffiti and get rid of the ugly Occupy Rogers Park pieces that are just covered in Graffiti.
Sure we can argue about first amendment rights. Its his right to do it. Its seems counter to what he is doing there however. The sculpture garden is pretty cool and its on google maps. And overall B1E has been a very positive influence on that area. But they shouldnt be tolerating that graffiti. It only serves a purpose to mark someones territory, its gang graffiti which is ugly and its not there just to admire. Its there to say this is mine.
I am talking about the paintings and canvases that line his fence on glenwood. I am glad that he took the paper off the giant fish skeleton, hopefully he will do something cool with that as well.
