Slab City Art or Graffiti? You Decide.

One thing I love about the Slabs is that things are always different when we return every winter. But in this case, I didn’t love what I saw.

What a disappointment to see the damage done to these ingeniously painted tanks near Salvation Mountain:

Much of the amazing art has been covered up by another “artist.”

While I can appreciate unusual, one-of-a-kind graffiti art, this crap is just blight. More of the same stuff that we see everywhere else. B O R I N G

I’d much rather see this, wouldn’t you?

For better or worse, nothing stays the same in Slab City.

  1. How sad someone painted over that! Although it’s not what I would want on my livingroom walls, it did have a kind of unique “Slab-ness” to the artwork when we toured over by the tanks!

  2. Too bad, I too prefer the original artwork.

    Did you go to the reopening of the library?
    Thanks for the updates….
