Graffiti on wall plus landscaping & grate.





In downtown Sioux City, Iowa! But what was the graffiti artist trying to do or say. Does he or she feel satisfied with his or her efforts.

Personally I find this to be a disappointing display. Maybe the people of Sioux City aren't able to come up with good graffiti ideas? I'd hate to think that Sioux Citians really are as stupid as their nationwide reputation makes them out to be.
