Street art or vandalism? A suite of ostensibly child-like — yet sophisticated — graffiti has appeared on concrete columns near Elysian Fields Avenue at the Interstate-10 up-ramp. The drawings were rendered in brushed black paint atop buff-colored patches of graffiti eradication paint.

Interesting drawings, but the ever-present question remains: Should we view this as an antisocial act or a gift of public art? Can it be both?
