The Hayes Gal (or, Crime or Miss Demeanor?)
There’s a lot to be said for living in a city that boasts 5+ art schools. Add to that a bunch of hacks like me, and you’ve got a recipe for a lot of art spillage-over. Now, I’m not jumping into the fray of Graffiti: Art or Crime? because I admit my view of it is slanted – if I like it, it’s art. If it’s over my property, it’s crime. Now isn’t that (conveniently) simple?
That said, I do seek out the good stuff. And there is a lot of it. My current favorite is a little 2-color stenciled beauty that is gracing many street corners around Hayes Valley. I call her the Hayes Gal. She’s saucy.
