Fordham Conversations
Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.

Some people see graffiti as vandalism, a crime or a sign of urban decay. Others see graffiti as art, self-expression and a testament of neighborhood pride.  On This Week’s Fordham Conversations we examine the topic of graffiti art. First we examine graffiti and the law with Leila Amineddoleh, Counsel to Lombard & Geliebter.  Then we discuss the evolution and impact of graffiti art with David Storey, an artist, Fordham University professor and Visual arts Program co-director at Rose Hill, along with Patrick Verel, whose research paper,  “New York City Graffiti Murals: Signs of Hope, marks of Distinction,” examines the usefulness of graffiti.
