Also, how does he distinguish between “street art” and “graffiti” definitionally? What is Riggle’s tone about “street art” vs. “graffiti” vs. “public art” in this essay? Do you agree with these definitions and his overall argument here? Why or why not?
- Do you agree with Riggle’s argument that “the meaning of street art outstrips the power of its manifest aesthetic properties”? (250) Why or why not? Is this always the case for street art?
