Richard Miller owns a variety store and received a notice to clean up the parking lot beside his property, which was teeming with graffiti. He initially thought that the graffiti was actually pretty good, but got excited when some local artists opened up about ideas with him. The artists are members of Art for Art’s Sake (AFAS), a group that promotes expression through art.
“Originally the plan was to put framework around the graffiti to show that we support the artistic pieces that can be created through graffiti. I discussed it with a few artists and the artists started incorporating their own designs into the letters that were already there,” said artist Stewart Knight.

Artist Sarah Hensley said, “I didn’t want to cover up or totally remove the graffiti. We got our friends involved and now it is this huge crazy art wall, and it looks really cool. I kept the graffiti in my art. People kept walking by to see it and said that looks like fun.”
