In BisMan – Is Graffiti Considered Art?
Good question - most of us see some form of "either-or" almost every day
Think about it, you are traveling down the road, and boom, right there on the side of a simple wall or maybe an underpass of a bridge is a drawing of some sort - either with spray paint or whatever - maybe colored chalk, I'm not sure what they use. Now look, I know that it is considered vandalism, we all do, obviously when it's on the side of a local businesses wall. Another thing, some of the works of graffiti could be gang markings, but I have no clue what those could be. I had to stop just yesterday when I was driving down Main, and saw something sketched out in white, on the side of a train ( by the way another popular place for this )
Bismarck's AMAZING Alley Art
Sometimes when we get into our own routine we miss out on what is clearly right under our nose - OR right down an alleyway - this is one of the coolest places I think I have ever seen here in Bismarck and Mandan. I stopped by Bismarck Art Alley over at 117 N 5th St almost two years ago, and I was blown away - ART on the walls! Here is a look from 5 years ago, check out the amazing, incredible work.
So keep your eyes open when you are out and about in BisMan...
...there really is beauty everywhere, and for the record, I don't support graffiti one bit, I acknowledge it and I'm also aware it's 100% against the law.
