Graphitti is Art

St. Louis - An Emerging Arts City

Two years ago when I arrived in the midwest, I was surprised to find amazing graphitti on the flood wall along the Mississippi River. A two mile stretch of artwork starts on the corner of Chouteau and Wharf, located near Busch stadium, and continues along the Industrial district in historic Soulard.
Graphitti is art. 

Artists have brought their talents to this unique public space in the form of spray paint and concrete. Many of the designs found on this wall are reflective of American pop culture. Whenever I need to find new inspirations, I stop by the graphitti wall for a dose of creativity. St. Louis is home to this gem, and earns its title as an emerging arts city.
