Rainbow Falls, Graffiti Art, and “Graffiti Falls”

Rainbow Falls lies along Fountain Creek above Manitou Springs, but because of visits by people with spray paint, many have come to know it by a different name: Graffiti Falls. KRCC’s Kate Jonuska set out to explore efforts to clean up the area, and discovered what some see as art, others see as vandalism.

  1. As an artist, I can appreciate graffiti as an artform. However, when it moves from the urban canvas to personal property and natural settings like Rainbow Falls, it is just mass vandalism and destruction. I have a saying concerning gang tags too: “If your name isn’t on my mortgage loan and property deed, here’s a news flash: “It’s ain’t your turf, you dumb turd!”
