Another article for you to read and ponder. It relates to an artist whose work, although not his name has become familiar to everyone lately. The artist is Shepard Fairey, his work is pictured just to the left. His arrest, and the reasons for it are talked about in the article linked at the bottom of this post.
The overall topic, the “crime” or “art” in question is not an uncommon topic for debate. So now it’s time for you to weigh in on that debate.
Along with the article there is also a youtube video, and links to various blogs and other resources, so you need not limit your thinking to the information preented in one article, feel free to examine a coupel other sources.
