"Permission walls" help create a canvas for managing graffiti


The exterior walls of a one-time Denver lumberyard have become a legal canvas for graffiti artists to spray-paint their creations with the owners' blessing.

At least four of the buildings that made up Kroonenberg Lumberyards on West Jewell Avenue between South Acoma and South Bannock streets are now "permission walls" where graffiti is encouraged.

"There has been a lot of gang-banger graffiti over there, so to prevent that, we have had some people come and do more artistic stuff," said Steven Cook, one of the property owners.
