GALLERY: Campus Street Art

By Briana Fields


Street art is one of the things I can appreciate most about a city – it’s unique to the artist and transforms an everyday object into a canvas. Unfortunately – but understandably – it isn’t always appreciated by property owners and often gets removed or covered up. While our campus isn’t overflowing with traditional spray-paint-on-the-side-of-a-building graffiti, if you look around, you can still find ways that students or other members of the community have left their mark on the streets of Champaign. In case of removal, I’ve captured some of them here.
