The power of paint

There’s no shortage of young artists in town and you can see some of the finest street-level work being created by the next generation of creators, this month at the Downtown Library. It’s a special exhibition of work created at the Ann Arbor District Library’s annual Teen Graffiti Contest, held in July during the Ann Arbor Art Fairs. Teens were invited to meet in the parking lot of the library and try their hand at graffiti on a provided four-by-four foot board. The results are always eye-popping, as kids outdo themselves in this fun and vivid medium. The best examples are on display all month (through September 5) in the library’s Multi-Purpose Room.
