Brookside has AIDS
Everywhere I turn, I see AIDS in Brookside. Let’s all work together to fight AIDS! Seriously though, I’m all for interesting street art in the right style and location, but this is just sloppy and lazy, though I admit that I do find it entertaining in the way it catches me off-guard and is totally out of context. Speaking of street art, I recommend this documentary about the mysterious British street artist Banksy, Exit Through the Gift Shop, which is nominated for an Oscar in the documentary category. To report graffiti in Kansas City, Missouri, call the 311 action center or visit their website.

FYI, the City cut its graffiti abatement program in the last round of budget cuts. So there is no point in telling the Action Center about graffiti on fire hydrants, stop signs, light posts, etc. But the City does still enforce the requirement for private property owners to remove graffiti within 48 hours, so please do report graffiti on houses, businesses, dumpsters, etc.
Thanks for the tip, Eric. Can’t say that I’m surprised with the litany of cuts the city keeps making.
I can’t believe that one big area for cuts is in the graffiti department. Is there any faster way to turn people off to a community?
I like the one on the fire hydrant the best… They really blew it with the dumpster… I say… they need to get their S consistant or get the F out of street art…
