Say What? Graffiti in the Arb - full panel
D280-2015 Arboretum graffiti
The graphics convey some ephemeral message, which I did not receive.
This is graffiti on the outer retaining wall for compost, dirt, gravel, mulch, etc. piles (not visible in the shot). It is only fully visible if you get off the trail and crawl through some brush, being careful not to step in poison ivy. Still, it is a popular 'tagging' site, and the 'scene' or the 'message' changes fairly often. I can make out most of the letters (for a change), but they don't make any sense as words. I'd welcome ideas on what this panel says.
The buildings in the background are Fuller Towers Apartments, at the junction of Fuller Road and Fuller Court, across the river from the Arb. I have mapped the approximate position of the structure with the graffiti.
