Los Angeles art-retailers Aaron Brothers' have launched a back-to-school campaign called Artrageous. They will be hosting free events, showcasing the work of prominent street artists and giving out free "graffiti starter kits" to participants. The kits themselves basically contain just markers and paper, but Councilman Dennis Zine says the Aaron Brothers' campaign glorifies vandalism. “This promotion is an assault on our community and sends a devastating message to our youth....What they're doing is promoting tagging, graffiti and trying to call it art."
