OBCES

I think of boxcar graffiti as touring art exhibitions of incredible talent that would otherwise never be seen in someplace like North Idaho.

 

I also find it interesting (and refreshing) that the rail companies make no effort to paint over the boxcars, but they do reapply (or clean) reflective elements over the artwork. I'm sure its more of a cost issue that they don't repaint, but I'm glad they don't.
