Graffiti, normally a transitory art form, is the subject of a more permanent body of work created especially for exhibit at Washington State University Vancouver by local artist Leah Jackson.
Jackson took photographs of graffiti while traveling in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, France and the U.S. Some of the graffiti has since been painted over. She has displayed those photos on distressed surfaces such as rusted steel and weathered wood. Jackson's artwork is on display in the WSU Vancouver Library through Nov. 21.
WSU Vancouver art galleries are open from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Friday. Admission is free. Parking is available at parking meters or in the Blue Daily Pay lot for $3.
