Grab Some Chalk and Express Yourself on the Street!

Give people a pen, marker, spraypaint, and even chalk — and they’re going to want to scribble their quotes, sayings, lyrics, poems, slang, tags, curse words, ideas, feelings, thoughts, beliefs on the walls.  A child’s desire to scrawl all over white walls — to create something where there is nothing — is still inherently trapped in us as adults!  So the answer isn’t always to repress graffiti, but rather, EMBRACE it! And this chalkboard scaffolding does just that.  Talk about harmless graffiti – it’s not vandalism as it invites you to write, and it’s sure easy to erase.

3.8.12, 14th St./6th Ave., Manhattan – Interactive chalkboard scaffolding! A great idea for anyone passing by to draw whatever they want with the provided chalk. – Barbra Tolentino
