Those organic, often narrow and winding, street art/graffiti tagged thoroughfares that we are drawn to are often an open secret to bohemian neighborhoods in cities; so full of life, these alleys of discovery tell you that dynamic minds are here, ready to interact with you. In recent years the concept has been adopted as a way to revitalize a vein that has gone dormant in downtowns as well – inviting, encouraging a series of artists to adorn one patch of the public dispatch, paving a visual tour by foot to remind you that planned public space can be welcoming place.
