Grafitti Mars the R.J. Templeton Building

RJ Templeton Building


After being so excited about Disjecta moving into the RJ Templeton building over the summer, I am now disappointed about the state of the building. While I appreciate grafitti art, I do not appreciate "tagging" and I really hate it when it mars historic buildings. The panels on the side of the building have murals showing the history of the building. These are now almost entirely covered by tags and inane grafitti, with no apparent effort being made to slow or abate the regular new additions to the walls. When I last posted about grafitti on this building, in June, there was only a small amount. (To compare, look at the pictures below).
