I grew up in NYC and have always been inspired by the street art. I now live in a rural community in Iowa (culture shock!) but have found an amazing art community in Iowa City where street art covers the buildings, alleys and parking garages.

Street art is such a value to communities. Colors shine in the darkest of times. Creatives have the opportunity for their work to be acknowledged. It sets the culture tone for tourists.

Your story is informative and valuable in creating a legacy for an artist culture.
