After years of construction to repair and shore up Key Bridge, which left the landmark looking sparkling clean, the abutments were recently tagged with graffiti.
GM first noticed the tags last week, and he believes they were added within a couple weeks. One of the tags says clearly “JACK”. (Former Councilmember Jack Evans did not reply by press time to deny he was the artist since GM did not actually reach out to him.) The others say “GEO” and “JTEA”.
It’ll take some powerwashing, but the graffiti is unlikely to leave any permanent damage. It still goes to show, though, that you can scrub a wall clean, but someone out there will simply see it as a clean canvass.
