From Supply and Demand, pg. 210:
The term “Urban Renewal” is typically used to suggest that part of a city that has been in decline is being restored. Sanctioned public art is sometimes part of this process. How ironic that street art is often considered a symptom of a neighborhood in decline. As taxpayers, we all own the public space, but the government and advertisers frequently control it. I prefer to see the public space used as a forum for expression. This, of course, has to be done in a logical and respectful way. Good street art, properly integrated, only enhances a city with visual stimulation and a flow of ideas. Advertisers, however, don’t want any competition. Don’t let the advertisers’ agendas dictate how your streets are used.
