Framed: The Shifting Aesthetic Style and Status of Graffiti Writing

This student-created display is now up on walls and study carrels in Reed Library. It aims to ignore the discourse of graffiti’s aesthetic contribution to contemporary culture by ignoring questions of its legal status in favor of a initiating a public conversation regarding graffiti writing’s unique aesthetic innovations and development. The display will educate students and visitors about the history of graffiti art, its stylistic development, and ongoing debates regarding its aesthetic categorization and display.
