Is this art?


The city of Montreal spent 11 million dollars last year to eradicate graffiti, and yet passions arise when one discusses the merits of this art. Because according to me and others, graffiti is art as long as that it is done on private property or by permission of the authorities. Other than that, in my opinion, it is damaging the property of the city, and the city and its various public buildings belongs to its citizens who pay taxes. Stumbled across a good essay on the web about this; http://www.graffiti.org/faq/stowers.html
