The downtown area would be perfect. Since it is currently going through a transition phase for the better. A little local art mixed with what history is left of the area. Great mix.

There is a little down there already that is tolerated but nothing like what I posted.

Alright! Alright! Let's take your estimate of 99% is crap, then why, why, why are we painting over the 1%!!!

Because this town celebrates bland, homogenous and dull.

Yeah, that's why it's such a tourist hotspot - because people love bland and dull - that explains it, but I'll stay on topic.

This town may not be to your taste, much like graffiti is not to my taste. I agree that much of what was presented in this thread is quite impressive art, but much of it I don't care for. I also agree with an earlier poster that the lack of graffiti was one of the things I liked about LV. I suppose it has it's place, but either way painting hundreds of miles? No thank you.

So, what do we do when a graffiti artist paints new graffiti over the original graffiti, that we paid for? Do we pay more money to erase the new graffiti off of the original (purchased) graffiti?

Interesting thread for me. I'm opening a fitness and tanning place in Mountain's Edge later this month and recently hired a graffiti artist to do mural artwork throughout the entire facility. I'm hoping to open several of these gyms around town.

Downtown project would be the perfect entity to support this and add to the culture of downtown.

All the beautiful artwork deleted. I think only one photo was copy written. Oh we'll.

This is a common misconception.

The photographer owns the copyright to his pictures, as soon as he snaps the shutter. And no one can use those pictures (with very few exceptions), without getting permission from the photographer, first. For instance, you own the copyright to all of your cell phone images you have posted on CD, and no one can (legally) can use those pictures, without your permission. And that includes reposting those pictures somewhere else on the web. I've been into photography for some 40 years. But the potential for copyright violation is the reason I very rarely post pictures on the web. Rather than trying to explain it all, here is a quickie article that helps clarify some of the copyright myths.

I always post links to the source also. Does that matter? Plus there is no personal gain. If anything, I probably direct online traffick to the original website where the photos are hosted. More beneficial to the original photographer. Sometimes the picture itself is the link. Sometimes I post a link and it gets edited or deleted. Maybe a violation of rules on here.

I am not sure.
