At JCC, Street Art Goes Home


Whatever your opinion of graffiti when it's found on the side of a building or a boxcar, there's no denying the graffiti-style art is popular, especially among young people.

At Jefferson Community College Thursday, students lined up to have their hats - or pillows or pennants - personalized by two airbrush artists, who spraypainted graffiti-like designs.

"I got in line and waited, like, 30 minutes for one," said Lakeah Woods.

"Watching faces of people reacting to what we give them conjured up out of thin air, they think its complete magic, that's really pretty cool, that's satifying," said Dennis Burke, one of the artists.

Burke said he's been working as an airbrush artist for four years, after finding himself burnt out after 13 years of working with computers.

The airbrush art was free to students Thursday, but paid for out of their student activity fee.
