COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A Northern Kentucky city is extending an invitation to graffiti artists.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports Covington officials have designated a space near a floodwall along the Licking River for community use.
The move comes after a blank wall on one of the 17 mural structures along the Licking River Greenways and Trails in Covington was repeatedly tagged with graffiti.
Officials with the city of Covington, Vision 2015 and ArtWorks of Cincinnati say they decided to welcome the graffiti art instead of trying to deter it.
Vision 2015 manager Kristine Frech said she hopes it becomes "a meaningful opportunity for people to express themselves."
