Graffiti 2.0 Tour

February 2, 2016

The Spring 2016 Art, Advertising & Hip Hop Culture class visited The Castle as part of their Graffiti 2.0 tour. The tour encompassed five Kansas City neighborhoods well known for extraordinary street art, graffiti and tagging. The castle is located at 20th and Vine has been abandoned for years, but when it was built in 1897 it was designed as a prison where petty criminals could work off their crimes. The back of the building has several openings where bold explorers can get inside and do their work. The place although not an official tourism site is a favorite for locals and visitors. While there, the group encountered a small group hanging out from St. Louis
