HAIKU OF THE DAY 7302017 (on graffiti)

Street Art

1.

Why is graffiti

Not considered public art?

It’s art… in public.

2.

Graffiti is made

By artists risking arrest

To create their art.

3.

All tags ain’t equal.

Some show mastery of craft

Others just boost blight.

4.

Tags send messages,

Ubiquitous calling cards,

Spray-painted on walls.

5.

Why is graffiti

Not considered public art?

Artistic freedom.

6.

Just for the record:

I realize graffiti’s

A property crime.

7.

Does “public art” mean,

“Sanctioned and approved artworks”

Or “art in public?”
