Railcar Art, Heaven!!

by Wayne Rogge August. 29, 2021 145 views

I had a client for many years with a rail spur that brought grain and commodities of different types onto the property. Over the years, I was able to capture 500+ photos of art and grafitti displayed on the cars. It led to me meeting several of the guys who tagged the cars at night. Two of the artists were quite well known, very talented. They ended up forming a non profit organization that now uses spray as a medium to teach children about art, expressing themselves and introducing social justice issues to the communities that are underrepresented in our system. I am now involved in restructuring the non profit. They have been far more successful than anticipated and have moved into a second state. It has been one of the truly memorable experiences of my life.

Yes it is.  Many have a very difficult time looking close enough to see art has a broad interpretation.  Thanks for commenting.  Wayne
