Be On the Lookout for "Angst" Who's Tagging Covington Buildings
From Michael Monks, editor & publisher of The River City News:
The staff at Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center in Covington's Licking Riverside Historic District arrived at work Friday morning to find the wall near the parking lot "tagged".
Someone calling himsef (or herself) "Angst" had a message: "Art is dead."
The statement was spray-painted on the wall just a day before the Center hosts its annual Twilight in the Gardens event.
This is at least the second time that "Angst" has struck this week.
I noticed the word "Angst" spray-painted in a similar style this week on what I remember being the front sign at the Lincoln Grant School building. When I checked again on Friday, though, it had I either been removed already or I was incorrect in my remembrance of where I saw it.
In any case, be on the lookout for Angst and let's bust this graffiti artist. If you see him or her, call police at 859-356-3191.
Art is cool. Graffiti is not.
Also, art is not dead, so go to Baker Hunt on Saturday and enjoy Twilight in the Gardens!
