Graffiti

The rebellious art form, as I find it.

Batman symbol on the intersection of 28th and Snyder.
I don’t drive down Snyder often, but did so last weekend. It was dusk, damp and I was on my way to an event when I saw this on the street. It was truly on the border of “did I just see that” or “is my mind entertaining itself with shapes and reflections”. Thankfully, my brain is keeping its entertaining ways to internal dialogue, fucked-up humor, and spectacular dreams, because this really exists. I don’t know how long it has been there, and I don’t know how much longer it will last in our ungentle winter weather. One more good snow + plow + freeze + salt + melt cycle may fade it away.
I think this graffiti is especially neat because of the location, right in the middle of an intersection.

If you’ve never heard of yarn bombing, you can follow the link I just gave you, but simply it is graffiti done in yarn. Sometimes it is only a scarf on a tree, a parking meter cozy; sometimes it ranges to wild and crazy. I’ve toyed with the thought of doing some yarn bombing, but never acted. It is considered graffiti and similarly, technically illegal in many places. Nonetheless, we have at least two recent instances of yarn bombing here in Cheyenne.

Cheyenne word yarn bomb on Pershing, on the fence of one of the school yards.
This one popped up a couple weeks ago along Pershing, on a schoolyard fence. I suspect multiple persons got together for this one, considering stitch density, color choice and size differences. It’s a nice, unobtrusive bit of fun.

For the next one, if you’re not from Cheyenne, I must explain about our pit. At the very end of 2004, Mary’s Bake Shoppe at 206 W Lincolnway (a block away from the Plaza heart of downtown) burned down and took out the Wyoming Home furniture store, damaged an art gallery and the Tom Horn building. It took a day or two to remove the fire danger and months for the wreckage to be removed. The lot has remained empty for the past eight years. It is a bit of an eyesore, especially since Cheyenne has been working hard over the years to strengthen the downtown area. There have been a number of private sector business fluffs, but no one followed through. There is a chain link fence, so that pub crawlers don’t fall in, but the only thing done to the area was some truly obnoxious anti-smoking graffiti/PSA put up on one side, not pictured.
The lot sucks. It is sorta a pit.
Flower and vine yarn bomb on Lincolnway, on the fence of the downtown pit.
Only last week, I was considering some graffiti type activity for this spot, with the upcoming downtown focus, but I probably wasn’t going to do anything. Then, Cercalaver mentioned there was some yarn bombing at the pit, so I grabbed my camera to check it out. Flowers! And vines! Nice! It doesn’t exactly detract much from the hole in the downtown building line, but it is something fun to see.

There you go, the latest creative graffiti in Cheyenne, in the medium of yarn!

Downtown graffiti, again

Back here Caindris (your name is Caindris, look, I’m paying attention this time!) sent in a shot of some ‘forgive us our trespassing’ graffiti in the park in upper downtown – often referred to as Pando’s Pond. We both suspected, but could not be sure what the paste up portion was. A couple days after that, I had a chance to stop by and take a closer picture.
Partial paste up remaining on graffiti piece.
As thought, it was a paste up of a graffiti artist in a kneeling, likely praying, position. It is completely in the same spirit as the sprayed graffiti; I think it is connected and by the same person. The paste up doesn’t seem to have held up well. Perhaps it got caught by the subzero weather we had shortly there. It didn’t seem to have a very thick media coating on it, so perhaps the artist was rushed or maybe just really hopeful.

While I was there, I took a quick circle of the park and snapped shots of all the current graffiti. I got a lot of neighborhood people staring at me, but I ignored them. I wonder if they aren’t on the high-alert lookout for more graffiti-ists.

Graffiti piece, downtown Cheyenne.
A stencil with some white background spray. The man wears crossed bandoliers and holds a paintbrush. It seems to be a replica of this photo of Pancho Villa, but I’m not sure on the ‘why’. Is this a message about insurgent activity and the US government? A comment on Mexico political changes? A comparison of graffiti artists to revolutionaries (not to put TOO BIG an ego of it?!!). Befuddlement. No clear message or insight, design fail for me.

Graffiti piece, downtown Cheyenne.
They keep saying “the end is near”, but it keeps not ending. What is it anyway? What is ending? Message failure; more trash to be cleaned up.

Graffiti pieces, downtown Cheyenne.
And finally the NW corner wall of the park with multiple, stenciled pieces. On the far left we have what looks like a Banksy send up and in the middle … OMFG, who cares!? This is uninspired, uninspiring, meaningless crap. This is not interesting – it is boring. Everyone has heard of Banksy. He is beloved, yes. Conservative government = con men, yes we know. It was clever a few years ago, but it is time for something new or at least something fresh added to the message. The end is near is just lost and pointless. Dali has been peeking around the corner for a while now, so I don’t mind him as it is a nice thing to surreal up your day, but this is it? This is the graffiti we get on the main traffic area upon entering downtown? I’m disappointed. It isn’t bad, really, but it isn’t good. It sure as hell isn’t great. At least I liked the cheekiness of the ‘forgive us our trespassing’ bit, even if it had little or no meaning. I’m all for humor.

Oh well, maybe things will pick up in the warmer weather. And I haven’t even posted about the Frontier Park Graffiti Debacle of Lameness. Oh, just you wait for that crap – I have the pictures.

Thank you, Caindris, for sending in this shot of graffiti on the south side of the tennis courts as you head downtown.
Graffiti in the tennis courts.
You may right click, View Image for the full size.
It says, “Forgive us our trespassing”, which I find excellent humor since the statement implies forgiveness of the very statement causing offense.
I might have to find time to go look at this myself as I can’t quite make out the black bit in the lower left corner. It looks to be some stencil graffiti, but it could be random shapes for all I can decipher. That’s okay, with the nice weather lately it is definitely time for some walks around the neighborhoods.

Grafitti in downtown Cheyenne.
In case you’re having trouble reading it upside down, it says, “Banksy lives” in blue.
By now, many of you have seen the Banksy version Simpson’s opening credits. If somehow you haven’t, go to Hulu and watch it now. Give it a few seconds because the first bit looks almost the same as always. Hang on, the rest isn’t.
Also, for you delicate folks, I’m sorry.

Grafitti in downtown Cheyenne.
The end is near, next to a stencil of Dalí, I think. What end? End of sidewalk, the park, the day, the marvelous freedoms, the end of The Man, the end of life as we know it, the world? What end? How near? Once again, I do not find a clear message in the grafitti. I like to think it was a warning that the sidewalk was ending.
The Dalí? I don’t know. But, it seems appropriately vague and surreal all by itself. Just a wacky (nearly typed “whacky” – Freudian typo) stencil of Dalí, peeking around a corner at you as you near the end. Yeah, it works.

There you go. A few bits of possibly useless cultural information for you.

Some reader submitted graffiti (from reader S1) for us all to enjoy.

Graffiti, stencil style
Here’s a quick stencil type graffiti.

And these are just a little more artsy. Definitely some time and effort in this work.

And this one. Personally, I’m thinking it is too cold to do much outside lately, but someone is out there, shivering for their work.

Yeah, good stuff.

The last of our Road Trip detail series. After this, few readers, we all get back to the regular TLTBE blog entries.

We woke in our noisy hotel in Vernal, and quickly got going. The first stop of the day was breakfast at Betty’s Cafe. Thank you, internets, for recommending this place. The coffee was Heaven, the waitress had too much pep, but was very fast and cheerful. Tourists and locals both ate heartily of the delicious food. If you go, the fried potato dish needed more frying – don’t know what that problem is in Utah, but seems common – everything else was great. When we went to leave, we watched an old guy in a large pickup pull in behind a small pickup and bumper push his truck a foot forward (slowly) as a greeting to his friend. It was funny.

Thus fed and caffeinated, we went directly to the Utah Field House Museum to start off our day. This museum is fantastic. It is a well designed museum and may have been the best sight of our trip, even though their entire main floor was empty and being refinished at the time. Your small entry fee gives you a seat at their introductory film, which I normally pooh-pooh, but it was good stuff. The film is set in a room done up as though it were a camp near a dig, with all the appropriate props. Lighted stars glow faintly from the ceiling and the film fades in while the stars dim, as if sunrise has come along with the start of the film. You are taken through a marvelous explanation, in almost-layman terms of what the Utah Field House is about, where their fossils come from and some maps to get you oriented. Then, paleontologists talk about the digs, what they look for, what they find and what it all means. These guys are equally as excited about their finds as Adam Savage is on most episodes of Mythbusters. That excitement is contagious and you carry it with you as the film ends and you head into the museum displays. There are a range of exhibits along the way, enough for youngsters to get involved, but mostly geared towards adults. Nothing too stuffy or dry.

Near this shot was the partial skeleton of the dino shown. They didn’t have the head to complete the skeleton and the drawing of the head seems to follow that out.

This fantastic museum had not only animal fossils, but plants as well. Here we have a chocolate family fossil Wonder what prehistoric chocolate was like? I do.

Pic by Slick;Wall of fossils Utah Field House Museum in Vernal, UT on Day Four of our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip.
A shot by Slick of the wall of fossils pulled from their dig sites. So many. The wall went about 20′ across and more than that high.

I could honestly go on about this museum for an hour it was so great. But let me just summarize here and tell you it was designed very well. You never noticed until you were done that you had just gone up a tall two stories while looking at the fossils. Lights, motions sensors, paintings, placards, music, everything was put in just the right place to help the experience without seeming cheesy or overdone. If you are headed by this area, I suggest you work it in to your plans somehow.

If the grand museum weren’t enough, they have a dinosaur garden outside, wrapped around their building. Paths take you past exotic looking plants, dinosaur statues and other prehistoric animal statues.
on Day Four of our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip.
Here is Slick next to a representation of creatures older than most dinos and previous up the line to peoples, although they extincted and never got to taste coffee. Slick is on the verge of making his ‘listening to inanimate objects’ expression.
Pic by Slick; me, goofing around at the Utah Field House Dinosaur Garden on Day Four of our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip.
Here’s me, goofing around. FYI: there are many signs requesting you stay on the path and don’t touch the statues. I promise I didn’t touch the statue, but I was off the path, surely. I usually am.

After a stop at the gift shop, we drove over and up to the Dinosaur National Monument area. Quite sadly, the Quarry building is closed for severe safety reasons. I didn’t even get a shot of the building itself as they’ve closed the road leading up to it. Inside that building is an enclosed quarry wall with exposed fossils, really good ones, still embedded in the rock. From the pictures and retellings, it is fantastic. Alas, we did not get to see it. They’ve set up a temporary visitor’s center with some displays and lots of maps to show you were to view and hike to the other sights in the area. We gathered up some (crappy) maps and got on our way. As it was again blazing hot without a breeze, we skipped over any hike that was longer than a mile. This still left us some good stuff to see.
Petroglyphs in Dinosaur National Monument Park on Day Four of our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip.
First up, petroglyphs. Petroglyphs are images chipped or carved into rock. Pictographs are images drawn or painted onto rock. I don’t know if there is a special term for petroglyphs that have been painted – do you guys?
Dinosaur National Monument Park on Day Four of our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip.
The park is a large area. After a couple petroglyph stops, we paused here to enjoy the flowers and stripes of land.

We continued on to Josie’s Cabin. Josie was a homesteader in a time when homesteading wasn’t done much anymore, what with telephones and international travel being hip. This picture shows a flower-filled field behind her cabin. There were some nice, shady spots here so Slick and I avoided the sun for a bit before continuing on our way.

Behind that wall of rock is another petroglyph site. The park did a nice enough job with paths, but don’t go about wearing sandals or without water.

Pic by Slick. I like that we got so close we could have touched the petroglyphs. We did NOT touch them, of course, with our destructive skin oils and all, but it was thrilling to stand right next to them where their creators stood once.

Earrings for everyone. Wave for the camera rock-chipping tool!

Everything we wanted to see in Dinosaur and Rangley, CO was either closed or not yet open for the season, so we decided to drive straight up through the Flaming Gorge Valley to head homeward.

Pretty enough, but we were ready to get closer to home. The beetles were busy around here and the forest is scarred, but still beautiful.

The entire four days of road trip. I drew in the rough shape of the Dinosaur Diamond Scenic Byway in purple so you could get the idea. Moab and the Arches National Park got cut off at the bottom of the map, but you get it.

It was a fantastic road trip. Slick and I had a good time, filled our nerd desires and saw some more of our nation.

Good times, good times.

Good fucking gods, I take a lot of pictures! Youze guys are getting the barest glance over them and I’m still editing for way too long. Of course, I am very lazy.

Day Three. We woke up in Price, barely functional and in desperate need of coffee. Slick actually tried to drink the in-room coffee, [I’d warned him against this] but it was so bad he had to toss it down the sink. We got our crap together, got gas and got directly on the highway. We were a mile away when we remembered we wanted to see the local museum, which was reportedly very good, but neither of us wanted to turn back to get to it. Thus, uncaffeinated and bumbling forward, we continued to Helper, UT.

According to their self-promotional web site, Helper is a town full of historic charm, varieties of boutique and antique shopping and a few delectable places to eat. These were all lies. Helper is a town on its last, rattling, commercial breath. There was a church and a gas station open there and that may be all that is EVER open there, judging from the many abandoned, for sale and boarded up buildings we saw. I did get this shot though:
Stencil graffiti on an underpass in Helper, UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
So that was cool. We stopped at the gas station and gathered up the most edible things we could find before hightailing it out of Helper. We’d just turned on to the next highway in the Diamond when I saw a small, very old cemetery [graveyard almost] off the side of the road. We flipped around and pulled up to the Castle Gate Cemetery. The town of Castle Gate was “dismantled” in 1974 [a mine town that COULD be dismantled] and thus you will not find it on a map. However, it is 10 miles NW of Price, just after turning onto HWY 191 N.
Wooden turnstile to the Castle Gate Cemetery NW of Price & Helper, UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
This is the wooden turnstile at the entrance to the cemetery. There have been a number of attempts to preserve, refresh or care for the cemetery over the years, all with varying degrees of success. Many of the graves are well cared for, but many more are slowly [desert climate means slow decay] crumbling back into the earth. You can read a ton of information about it online with a simple search.
A grave in the Castle Gate Cemetery NW of Price & Helper, UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
In some of my pictures you will see blank, rusted placards on stakes near the graves, possibly one cataloging attempt. There were also lots of four feet tall wooden stakes in the ground near some of the graves, but these were incomplete and haphazard, by both marked and unmarked graves. There is also a large, marble stand with all the names of everyone known to be buried here by the front gate. There are a few web sites with some good cross-referenced data, as well.
A grave in the Castle Gate Cemetery NW of Price & Helper, UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
On March 8th, 1924, there was a disastrous explosion in the mine in Castle Gate which killed 172 miners. A large number of them were buried in the Castle Gate cemetery and it made for a haunting date, repeated across the surviving stones.
View from above, the Castle Gate Cemetery NW of Price & Helper, UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
Here is the whole thing from above, off the road. This is the only partly abandoned cemetery I’ve seen in this sort of climate. That alone made it interesting to me.

Back on the road. Next up was the stretch through some initially pretty, but ultimately mind-numbing Utah scenery. I am never living in Utah. We got so bored we started playing the Cow Game. I will have to take a separate post to explain the Cow Game, in part because it is mostly made up by Slick and I. We drove a lot and we only stopped for another cemetery that looked interesting in Fort Duchesne. Sadly, it killed half my Cow score, but it was colorful enough that I wanted to stop. Again, I’ve never seen a cemetery like this: so full of color and kitsch.

The area is 95% American Indian, which was indicated by most of the names found there.

The non-traditional decorations make sense and make for an unusual cemetery. There was an incredible variety of stuff there. Many landscaping materials were put to good use, red and white rocks, planters, statues, bird baths, solar path lighting, flags.
In the Fort Duchesne Cemetery in UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.

    We didn’t stay very long here for a couple reasons.

  1. Cemeteries aren’t the most cheerful or frivolous places and I certainly didn’t want to imply disrespect for the quiet residents here.
  2. It was hot as hell.
  3. The earth didn’t seem to be able to keep up with the returns made to it; there was a mephitic, permeating stench that was downright disturbing to one in the middle of hundreds of graves and who has a zombie phobia.

So, we left.
In the Fort Duchesne Cemetery in UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
Just remember, nature doesn’t pause for our vanity or traditions.

Also, I want to be cremated. In case anyone needs to know. Cremation. Stereotypical (not traditional) Irish wake, but with ashes. Done.

Back on the road and the Cow Game got some serious play on the way to Vernal, UT. We drove through and around the town before checking in to our hotel.
Centennial dinosaur in Vernal UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
Vernal is currently celebrating its centennial and many of the town dinosaur statues are dressed for the occasion.

At the hotel, we researched what we’d do the next day and found a nice place to eat in town for dinner. Out in the small town, on a Sunday, most places were closed. Their main street did have a number of small, interesting shops that we’d have visited if our schedule had laid out differently. Before dinner we stopped by the Parcel Post Bank.
Plaque for the Parcel Post Bank in Vernal UT, seen during our Dinosaur Diamond Road Trip, Day Three.
The bank itself isn’t so spectacular as is the way the materials arrived. The bigwigs decided to mail the ‘fancy’ bricks to Vernal using the USPS parcel post. They mailed 40 tons of bricks through the mail, wrapping & addressing each one.

The USPS was forced to immediately rewrite their rules.

Our first choice Mexican restaurant was closed on Sundays (which caused me to have a two week, insatiable desire for Mexican food) so we ended up at our second choice restaurant, the Dinosaur Brew Haus. It was great. It should have been our first choice, but the online reviews barely did it justice. Slick had some of their brews and was pleased. Their dinners were delicious and the whole place was plain, simple, local decor and completely great. There were loads of pictures of the tours and white water rafters to look at. They share a building (and company head?) with a tour guide place. We brought some of their beer back with us; you can’t pass up beer named Evolution Amber, Polygamy Porter and 1st Amendment Lager, especially from Utah.

After dinner we went to a movie, then headed back to the hotel. It was strange, but kinda nice to watch a movie in a different town. And thus ended Day Three.

Here is the Google map summary of Day Three, coincidentally showing one fourth of the Diamond.

The other day, I was making my way through the convoluted security screening area of DEN when I saw this:

Click the picture for a link to more information about OBEY. This is something I simply love, even with the pretentiousness. Also, I do consider this graffiti; stickers, stencils, paste-ups, straight spray cans, all of it.

Let me mildly say here that TSA gets antsy when you pull out a camera near them. I was not detained or extra screened, but I was watched heavily. Fitting, for what I was photgraphing, I suppose.

Remember grafitti?

Yeah, me too. It has been a while. Here’s a good one:

Grafiti, stolen from the internets

Hah. It does touch on the whole, pervasive idea (that I’m about tired of hearing people regurgitate) about forgoing privacy in place of personal ‘advertising’, from the other side of The line. I like to use this same font personally, so I’m fond of it for that, too.

Here is a new stencil design, seen in Cheyenne and photographed by our local OddMuffin.

A closer shot.

Again, like much of the stencil grafitti I see in Cheyenne, I don’t get it. If you’re putting up graffiti to get a message out, there should be an understandable message. If you’re doing it as some sort of signature (“I’ve been at this mailbox!”) then I think it would be less incriminating and equally messy & illegal to just urinate on the thing.

Thanks, OddMuffin, for the shots!

Yesterday, Slick and I took a long, crunching through the leaves walk all over downtown. This nearly obscene fall weather (76F – in November. But there’s no such thing as global warming, you frakking hippie tree hugger Democrat. Yeah right.) makes for very nice walks. I saw another crow graffiti and this paste up:

The paste up graffiti is less common, but I’m glad to see some expressive variety around. Can’t all be spray paint and stencils.

Input from diva llama again and she is hot on the trail of the Backwards N graffiti culprit!

Check it out:

More stencil graffiti from Backwards N.

She said she found this one on a concrete barrier back on Nationway where there is also a stencil tank.

Sometimes I wonder if I’d be able to stake out any of the popular or likely spots for stencil graffiti and witness someone in the act. I’d have to be hidden and very patient. And out in the cold. I like my house and bunny slippers and crafty workshop. So, no. I wouldn’t be doing that I guess.

Once again, diva llama comes through with the graffiti shots.

Stencilled graffiti message of 'Con Men' found by diva llama.

Stencilled graffiti sent in by diva llama.
While I don’t like this graffiti much, I love this photograph. I edited for the web, but the original was even better. You’ll have to check out her blog for the full photo. I like the sunlight and shadows on the wood and the fence in the back. Think I’m teasing you about her blog? Yeah, I kinda am. I know she has one or two blogs and is currently too busy to keep them up to date, but I am hoping that she’ll post this full photo on her blog one day so I can link to it properly. See diva llama, there is one post already!

This one is my favorite:
Stencilled penguin gun graffiti sent in by diva llama.
Although, the gun… Penguins have a hard life, I suppose. The multiple colors are well done and all sections are nicely aligned in this one. Top notch work.

I asked diva llama how she finds so many tags. She told me she has honed her already fine seeking skills to a single bit point. Besides, she and her mate are GeoCachers so they are out and about seeking particular objects often. She almost has me convinced to try it, but I’m only going if I can combine it with letterboxing. Handmade crafts and high tech toys = joy.
