“The only way to stop the city’s blatant and illegal activity is by going for the pocketbook.” — 3x arrested Brooklyn artist Ellis Gallagher for drawing on the sidewalk with chalk [Gothamist via Brooklyn Paper]
MY BOGUS ‘GRAFFITI’ CASE, IN WHICH I WAS ARRESTED AND IMPRISONED FOR 23 HOURS FOR PAINTING ON MY OWN WATERCOLOR PAPER- WAS DISMISSED TODAY!!
You will probably remember the wrongful arrest of watercolor artist Julie Torres on a ridiculous charge of graffiti. We last reported on her court appearance last month, but now this great news. Congratulations, Julie!
