Words on the street

Let's talk about street art, shall we? "Street art," as a term, is so broad (as is the concept it represents), and there are so many different types of street art out there that it's easy to forget that some street art - a lot of it, in fact - has a point. Sometimes that point is direct and profound, and sometimes it's open to interpretation. Consider Shepard Fairey's Progress/Obama poster, or nearly anything Banksy does. It's like thousands of open-ended messages lining the streets of your city, just waiting for you to notice them. And there's no more overt way to convey a message via street art than to use words. For today's street art fix, feast your eyes upon the word-centric images below, all from the Boston area.
