Is graffiti art?

This question was recently posed by a downtown Tacoma business owner on the Tacoma Arts Listserv. The replies were overwhelming for and against. The email banter ranged from extremes of glorification to “the person should be arrested.”

I asserted that response proved: “It is illegal, thought provoking art. Exactly the opposite of the mindless pop music, movies and television we ingest daily. I wonder what the artist was trying to say?”

What do you think?

the term graffiti encompasses many subgenres of types, styles, and tangent uses. what is graffiti, where does street art end and regular old art begin? i feel like making a blanket statement about graffiti is like making a blanket statement about art in general. indeterminate, and hard to back up.

thanks for moving this out of my inbox. i think its a nonissue though really, those people just want to hear themselves talk (or read themselves write).
