Graffiti art exhibit debuts in Ellensburg

ELLENSBURG, Wash — Gallery One Visual Arts Center in Ellensburg debuted a new exhibition Friday displaying graffiti art from around the Pacific Northwest. Titled “The Writing’s on the Wall,” the exhibit will run through July 31.

Many from the local community showed up at the opening, which featured a cash bar and live DJ. Curator and local artist Jason Clifton said he hopes the exhibition demonstrates the artistic quality of graffiti to people generally not exposed to it.
