Legalize it.

Eugene, OR
     How do you solve your city’s budget crisis from “cleaning up” street art?  Make it legal!  The small spray park pictured above may be the start of a new trend sweeping across the states.  In Eugene, a small designated area invites artists of all skill levels to throw up a piece.  While some may argue that this is not true street art (cheapening the thrill of illegality and exposure), it is a progressive step in recognizing, respecting and preserving artistic culture that would otherwise remain unwarranted in many cities.    

Get a good look…they won’t stay this way for too long.
