7 Mural Artist Painting in Graffiti Garage in Tacoma, Washington

Graffiti is illegal in Tacoma, Washington. However, the city allows public expression at 723 Broadway Street, better known as the Graffiti Garage. The concept of providing a canvas for talented artists was created by the Tacoma Arts Commission and the city. Six days a week, the garage is open for short-term parking. On Sundays, when the cars are gone, the artists bring knapsacks and carry cases of specialized paint to create distinctive murals. Their self-policed code is that an artist can only paint over an existing work if theirs is more elaborate and artistic.
