With the hope of reducing the amount of graffiti tagging, the City of West Dallas has designated a “free wall” for graffiti artists. Located on an abandoned warehouse, this sanctioned graffiti wall is the first of seven walls planned to be designated throughout the city over the next few years.
Assistant Chief Randall Blankenbaker said, “We hope you will not only display your talents here, but make your influence on
younger artists to do this in a way that is legal.”
The City currently receives approximately 60 graffiti reports per month. Only time will tell if this Graffiti Free Wall experiment will increase or decrease the total amount of tagging.
