Zion National Park is one of Utah’s most-visited national parks. It is magnificent in its natural beauty and is a source of pride for all Americans.
Despite this, a graffiti tagger has defaced a rock face with spray paint. This has resulted in outrage and disgust.
National Park officials have had to remind visitors to this US National Park that graffiti tags (in this case a pair of triangles) is NOT art. It is NOT artistic expression. It is ONLY vandalism.
"As important as artistic expression is, we do not want to deface the natural resources of our beautiful public lands,” the post reads on the Zion National Park Website. “No matter how small or superficially drawn, graffiti in the park is vandalism. Humans have been leaving their marks on rock walls for thousands of years in this region. But these days, writing on the walls isn’t necessary, and in a national park, it’s illegal.”
The punishment for vandalism includes possible jail time and potentially thousands of dollars in fines.
What is the difference between street art and graffiti tagging? Everything.
