History of Art undergraduate Alex Suppan delivers a thoughtful write-up on the merits of Art History, and the way it impacts our perception of the world through the lens of the experience of creating graffiti with guest of the University, Cacao Rocks.
"Walls don’t have voices, but they can speak.
Try listening to the walls in Ann Arbor. Have you noticed the graffiti tags on them? On the city’s more public walls, these marks whisper the monikers of their makers –– they are disobedient yet discrete.
If you go to Graffiti Alley on East Liberty, the walls scream at you. Come back the next day, and they will scream something different. Here, the conversation never concludes, it never pauses. It always continues."
