Art In Random Places

The LA Times reported this week about a piece of conversational street art. The work appeared on “the face of 200-foot Matilija Dam near Ojai.” Apparently the surfing community, fishing community, and everyone else who remotely cares about the environment, has been petitioning for removal of the dam. According the LA Times:

For years, an alliance of environmentalists, fishermen, surfers and officials from every level of government has called for demolishing the obsolete structure.

Now, an anonymous band of artists has weighed in, apparently rappelling down the dam’s face to paint a huge pair of scissors and a long dotted line. The carefully planned work popped up last week and is, no doubt, Ventura County’s most environmentally correct graffiti by a dam site.
