Most mornings while we are at the dog park we see a train come by. Jed loves to chase the trains along the fence so I usually try to wait for one before we leave. I have noticed that almost every boxcar is covered with graffiti. It made me curious. Graffiti is defined as writings or drawings scribbled, scratched or sprayed on walls or other public places. In most cases it is illegal.
Usually painted using aerosol cans of paint, I can only imagine where it is being created and how. It’s almost a stealth art form. We get to see a lot of it as these trains head in and out of the Virginia Inland Port here in Front Royal. The port brings a great deal of boxcars and a great deal of “art” into the community for anyone who will look.
