“Indispensable Wisdom on the Pavement”: I know, technically not graffiti. But if floors could talk, what a story this piece would tell. It shows every floor finish over the years of the prison’s operation, from rough concrete to smooth concrete to tiles to red and finally black linoleum. To boot, It’s better than some abstract paintings.
