Monday Morning Coffee: If You Build it, They Will Fill It

A white wall that was just asking to be embellished.  Not with graffiti but with messages.  

Along the road leading into the Whitewater Gorge - not far from Richmond High School - we have a variety of answers to the We R from many different people. 

A bit further along  we have individual works.  Each person filling their white space.

There are also more traditional carefully composed pieces that tell a story.

Wall paintings are not uncommon in Mexico, Central and South America.  These influences are appearing as the Richmond population becomes more diverse.  

As always, click on an image to enlarge.
