Graffiti Alley at Cambridge, MA

Graffiti Alley can be easily missed by the casual passerby. It connects Massachusetts Avenue to a parking lot near Central station between Harvard and MIT.


It invites anyone to express their emotions in spray paint form, and indeed artists of all levels come to join in, including well known artists in the Boston area. It is always changing.
“Art is an evolutionary act. The shape of art and its role in society is constantly changing. At no point is art static. There are no rules.”
– Raymond Salvatore Harmon

Regardless of one’s view on graffiti as art, it is quite a colourful, if hidden, spot around Boston and tells a story of its own.


    • I believe Cambridge, MA was named after Cambridge University in England.
      Yes the venerabke buildings of Cambridge UK would be incongruent with graffiti 🙂


    • I haven’t seen the gum wall at Obispo, CA, but upon googling find it quite interesting too, perhaps a bit strange for my “taste.” 🙂

      Thanks for the comment and thanks for sharing, Mr. Mel!
