St. Louis Street Art

I like the freedom and spirit of the St. Louis street artists Keegan Hamilton writes about in this week's RFT. Keep St. Louis Free used hand-painted lettering to get our truth out too, and the police weren't completely happy with our efforts either. The problem with the street artists Keegan writes about is that they don't own what they're painting on. The police didn't like us showing up on overpasses, but we owned our banners.

I doubt that Alderman Donna Baringer's law has done much to stop St. Louis street artists .
