Topic: In the previous unit, I introduced you to the concept of folk art. Now we will zoom in on one
particular “art” form: graffiti. After viewing Style Wars, reading the New York Times’ Room for
Debate on “When Does Graffiti Become Art?”, and reviewing the Encyclopedia of American
Folklife’s entry on “Graffiti,” answer the question “When does graffiti become art?” You should give
due consideration to both sides of the argument and then take a stand on one side or the other. As you
develop your own opinion, you should refer directly to issues and examples raised in the lecture,
readings, and video from the Folk Art and Graffiti units.
