Feel the Writing on the Wall

Posted by Rick | September 24th, 2007 | Filed under Design, Environmental Change


I was hanging out in front of a local restaurant and noticed a cool bit of graffiti on its bright orange doorway. It was a sticker with Braille on it, tagged with another sticker that read “Braille Graffiti.”

I walked back into the office and immediately Googled the subject, a query that resulted in my finding out that one of Portland’s most infamous “public artists” was responsible for the work. It was the latest project by Scott Wayne Indiana, the guy we blogged about almost a year ago who’s best known for attaching toy horses to the century old horse-rings on PDX’s sidewalks. This latest project, peppered around the city last month, arrived just in time for Portland’s Time Based Art Festival, and raises the question: Why shouldn’t street art be enjoyed by everyone?
