In 300 words (ok to go over if needed):
First summarize why you think street art and graffiti has become more popular over the last few years.

Can street art and graffiti have the same impact if it is legal or does it have to be illegal to be effective? Can you put street art or graffiti in a museum or sell it in a gallery or does this negate its purpose? What is the role of politicalstreet art like those by Banksy or those connected to Black Lives Matter weve seen painteddirectly on streets?
Then explain one or two examples of street art or graffiti that support your point of view.
