Does This Make Bozeman Look Trashy?
Some call it art, but most of the time it's not.
One of the things I've noticed since moving to Bozeman is that there is a lot of graffiti. It's something that came as a surprise to me since Bozeman is such a nice place to live.
When I lived here 12 years ago, I never noticed graffiti. In the proper place, graffiti can sometimes be considered art, but most of the graffiti I've seen in Bozeman hasn't been art at all. In fact, I would call it blatant vandalism, and defacing of private property. I know that Bozeman is still a considerably small town, but I think people could find a more productive use of their time.
One example that angers me the most is the old train station on Wallace. It's a beautiful building that has been destroyed by vandalism and graffiti. I think that as a community we need to make a stand against vandalism before the problem gets more out of hand than it already is. Bozeman is a beautiful place, and it should stay that way.
