A couple of years ago, some ugly graffiti was found around Ridgefield, including at the high school. The Ridgefield Youth Commission looked for a way to respond.
They hired local artists Joann and Bruce Hunter to design a mural for the side of the youth barn. In March 2018 hundreds of volunteers placed quarter-inch porcelain tiles on the barn. The message: kindness, inclusion, tolerance. An abstract design, no words. For each viewer to interpret.
A positive response to an ugly incident.
Let's hope that works to keep the tagging away.
A perfect response to graffiti. The tile mural is impressive.
I photographed some graffiti recently. On a wall made for the graffiti artists. It is usually repainted on a daily basis. This looks nice.
That is very pretty!
That is thought provoking.
